He Sighed
Mark 7:34
by Martin Luther

This sigh was not drawn from Christ on account of the single tongue and ear of this poor man, but it is a common sigh over all tongues and ears.. Our beloved Lord saw full well what an amount of suffering and sorrow would be occasioned by tongues and ears. For the greatest mischief which has been inflicted on Christianity has not arisen from tyrants (with persecution, murder, and pride against the Word), but from that little bit of flesh which abides between the jaws. This it is which inflicts the greatest injury upon the kingdom of God.
