from a member of my parish:

On Law and Gospel: "If you think you need one, you probably need the other instead."

On the Second Use of the Law: "If everyone would go to WalMart and spend ten bucks on a mirror, most of the problems in the church would go away."

Corollary to #1:

Don't try to preach to yourself.

Your member is a theologian. We've all said variations of the second statement, and always think others need the mirror because we already have ours, such is the impossibility of our fallen character, but the first statement is very well-said and insightful. Thanks for these.
