A Meditation for Chinese New Year by Martin Luther

I find this short meditation by Martin Luther good to consider at any new beginning, lunar or solar.


The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord. – Psalm 33.5.

God’s wonderful works which happen daily are lightly esteemed, not because they are of no import, but because they happen so constantly and without interruption. Man is used to the miracle that God rules the world and upholds all creation, and because things daily run their appointed course, it seems insignificant, and no man thinks it worth his while to meditate upon it and to regard it as God’s wonderful work, and yet it is a greater wonder than that Christ fed five thousand men with five loaves and made wine from water.
