Life Thought in the Church Year for August 18th
“Marriage and family, sexuality and procreation reflect the grace of God in our Lord and Savior
Jesus Christ (Ephesians 5:31). Therefore, sexuality sought outside of marriage or exercised exclusively to
gratify self and flesh’s appetites cheaply imitates, poorly substitutes for, and only incompletely apprehends
the fullness of God’s blessing for it. Celebrating and engaging in the blessings of chastity, modesty, and even
celibacy best protect and prepare the heart patiently awaiting His vocation to marriage. And taking one’s
place within the Christian fellowship, whether as spouse or single, leaves nothing lacking (Mark 10:29-
30).” Rev. Michael W. Salemink, executive director of Lutherans For Life – A Life Quote from Lutherans For
