9 rules for preachers

Apparently these are originally from Luther. I like nos. 2, 6, 7 and 8 most.

First, a good preacher should be able to teach well, correctly and in an orderly fashion.

Second, he should have a good head on his shoulders.

Third, he should be eloquent.

Fourth, he should have a good voice.

Fifth, he should have a good memory.

Sixth, he should know when to stop.

Seventh, he should be constant and diligent about his affairs.

Eighth, he should invest body and life, possessions and honor in it.

Ninth, he should be willing to let everyone vex and hack away at him.
