The Best Medicine

Near the end of his life, Protestant reformer Martin Luther suffered debilitating headaches.

When told about a costly medicine that might offer some relief, Luther smiled and said, “My best prescription for head and heart is that ‘God so loved the world, that

he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.’”

That Bible verse became a refrain for Luther on his deathbed. “What Spartan saying can be compared with this wonderful brevity,” he said of John 3:16. “It is the Bible itself!” After repeating the words of that Gospel-in-a-nutshell verse three times in Latin, Luther exclaimed, “They are the best prescription for headaches and heartaches!”
