In this week’s installment from Off the Record with Martin Luther, Luther speaks about the folly of delighting in wealth and honors at the expense of God::
“6582. A person, who has produced wealth in the world and earned honors, while neglecting God and his soul, is like a small child, who holds an apple in his hand, which has a beautiful form and color, and thinks he has something good; however, on the inside it is rotten and full of worms.” (p. 171)
