In this week’s installment from Off the Record with Martin Luther, Luther illustrates the pervasive nature of hope in everyday life:
3828. Everything that comes to pass in this world is based on hope. No farmer would sow grain if he did not have hope for the seed. No young man would marry if he had no hope of offspring. No businessman or wage earner would work if he did not expect a profit or wages. And even more does the hope of eternal life carry us on! (p. 424)
