Update: Evidently the source of this quote can’t be found because Martin Luther didn’t really say it! Please see the links in the Vanessa’s comments below.
I’ve posted this quote before, but here’s another sentence to add. And, frankly, I need the reminder. I still don’t know the source of this quote, other than Martin Luther. This quote is found in Mark Buchanan’s book The Rest of God, a book I’d highly recommend.
is doing the will of God just as much as the monk who prays–
not because she may sing a Christian hymn as she sweeps
but because God loves clean floors.
The Christian shoemaker does his Christian duty
not by putting little crosses on the shoes,
but by making good shoes,
because God is interested in good craftmanship.~ Martin Luther
