- Why do some people age well and others come to their ends in bitterness? Toward the end of his life—especially after his dear daughter Magdalena died at age 13—Luther’s writings became extremely angry and hateful against the Jews, the Turks, the Pope and others who didn’t understand theology the way he did. The Nazi’s and others used Luther’s words to justify murdering millions. How can you make sure that you both age well and end well?
- What do you want your legacy to be? How can you work now to make that legacy positive?
