Small Steps That Lead to Great Understanding

Godly wisdom must be sought actively and obediently. If conscience can indicate only a step or two, then a great deal depends on our taking those steps. What we don’t know must never prevent us from doing the duty we do know.

Hearts That Feel Nothing

God gave us hearts that were meant to respond. When they no longer do so, when quite natural feelings of love and gratitude are not evoked even by the acts of God, we’re in grave danger.

Letting People Be People

Our expectations of others will be more realistic when we see God as the only Source of what we most deeply need. Secure in His love, we’ll not place on anyone else the impossible burden of loving us perfectly.

Positiveness

Positiveness is the outlook of opportunity. It deals realistically with what now is, but it’s also confident of what could be, if energy and intelligence were applied to the situation. Positiveness dares to believe that the future can be better than the past.

The Joy of Fulfilling Our Purpose

God has given you a mind to know Him, a memory to recall His favors, a will to love Him, eyes to see what He does, and a tongue to sing His praise. This is the reason you are here.

Devotional and Bible study resources for the serious seeker. Written by Gary Henry, WordPoints materials encourage spiritual growth. Whether you view yourself as a Christian already or you’re just searching for answers to honest questions, these daily devotions and biblical studies will challenge you.
The Christian daily devotional books published by WordPoints — the WordPoints Daybook Series — are written with a lofty goal: we want to define a new standard for daily devotional books. In contrast to much that is published in the “devotional” genre today, our devotionals are different in at least four ways:
  1.   A more God-centered approach to spirituality.
  2.   A better balance between gratitude and reverence.
  3.   A more serious approach to devotional meditation.
  4.   A better balance between candor and courtesy.

Content published by WordPoints is intended to be provocative in the highest sense. If we do no more than give folks an encouraging “hug” and an approving “pat on the back,” we will have failed to serve them as we should. When we write, therefore, it is not merely to tranquilize our audience. Our purpose is to move readers out of their comfort zones — and then help them experience real spiritual growth.

Investigating the texts contained in the Bible is an important activity, and we hope that our Bible study materials reflect that importance. WordPoints Bible studies are not fluffy, feel-good exercises, but significant guides to serious study. If you want to dig deeper into the Scriptures, you’ve come to the right place.

We recognize that Bible study is sometimes surrounded by controversy, and we do not hide from that controversy. But we do try to balance candor and courtesy, in the belief that the search for truth about God should bring out the very best in us.

Christian Daily Devotional Books

Each book in the WordPoints Daybook Series is available from Amazon.com. Visit Gary’s “Author Page” at Amazon for more details.

Our newest volume, More Enthusiastic Ideas, is scheduled for publication this fall. It will be great for end-of-the-year gift-giving!
