Luther and MaxwellPosted: March 5, 2009
“My attitude in the areas (of life) that I do control will be the difference maker.” John Maxwell, The Difference Maker
John goes on to cite a few examples of people in bad situations who made the best of it by choosing how they would respond- that is, they decided to have a great attitude. Martin Luther is one of the examples.
Luther, after being excommunicated (for the whole 95 Theses episode and what-not) was confined to the castle Wartburg. During his time there, he continued his work- communicating his theses to the outside world thru letters (proving once again that the best letters come from prison) and translating the NT into German.
