Mondays with Marty

In this week's installment from Off the Record with Martin Luther, Luther comments on the wonder of God's creation of human beings:
2578 He took his infant son Martin on his lap, and said: Oh, to think that God can put such a fine black-haired angel in such a piece of flesh from a stinking sack! It seems to me like taking a pancake and sticking an angel in it. But it is a real art to make a nose, mouth, hands and feet out of of a piece of flesh in a mother's womb. (p. 265)

Interesting perspective on the creation of life from human beings. Although I think it is important to not downplay mankind's ability to reproduce and essentially create life, albeit through the power of God's handiwork. Great quote thought, very thought provoking.
