Managing Monday with Martin Luther – take 2

Posted by on Jul 17, 2017 in Blog | 2 comments

As the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation draws near, it is only appropriate that we spend a few weeks looking at the insights of one the leading figure of the Reformation, Martin Luther (1483-1546).

  • I must listen to the Gospel. It tells me not what I must do, but what Jesus Christ, the Son of God, has done for me – Martin Luther
  • It is the duty of every Christian to be Christ to his neighbor – Martin Luther
  • The Christian shoemaker does his duty not by putting little crosses on the shoes, but by making good shoes, because God is interested in good craftsmanship – Martin Luther
  • You are not only responsible for what you say, but also for what you do not say – Martin Luther

As always, nice chatting…


  1. Comment * can you kindly point me to which writing of Luther that he said this “shoes, because God is interested in good craftsmanship – Martin Luther” please?
    Thanks a lot

    • Hi Greg. Thanks for querying this. A bit of research reveals that though this quote is widely and frequently attributed to Luther he never actually said it. My apologies. It’s why I stopped the “Managing Monday” part of the blog a few years ago – just too hard to be confident of the valid attribution of some otherwise great sentiments.
