Luther promoted singing lessons for children. He wrote, “Children must … sing and learn music together with mathematics.” Luther knew that songs enter straight into the soul and convey biblical truth to children even before they’re able to read.
Martin Luther was recognized as a gifted singer and accomplished lutist. He was even referred to as the The Wittenberg Nightingale. (Also, watch a video reenacting Luther playing the lute and his wife, Katie, singing.)
Luther’s thoughts on music and the Word of God. (Also, listen to his hymn: Dear Christians, One and All, Rejoice.)
“Protect your church, Father, from callous thoughts about calamities that leave millions destitute, and protect her also from cowing to critics, like Job’s wife, who cannot trust the wisdom and power and goodness of Christ in the midst of inexplicable misery.”
“The God who works all things together for good will leverage every experience, every skill, every mistake, and every bit of knowledge you have acquired.” ~ Mark Batterson
J. C. Ryle: “When a lion came and took a lamb out of David’s flock, David arose and delivered the lamb from his mouth. Christ will do the same. Not a single sick lamb in Christ’ flock shall perish.”
“If you want to change the world, pick up your pen and write.” ~ Martin Luther
