To Whoever wishes to be a Pastor...

"Whoever wishes to be a pastor must be committed with his whole heart to seek only the glory of God and the welfare of his fellowman. If, however, he does not solely seek God's honor and the good of his fellowman, but by his office seeks for personal gain or his neighbor's hurt, you may be sure that he will not stay the course."

--From Martin Luther's second sermon for Misericordias Domini, 1534.
