Meditations for Daily Growth

Obeying the Gospel

Different Soils, Different Hearers (June 16)

Different Soils, Different Hearers (June 16) 

In the Parable of the Sower, Jesus used the analogy of four kinds of soil to teach that hearers have different hearts — just as the seed sown by a farmer doesn’t always fall on productive soil, the gospel doesn’t always fall into receptive hearts.

Diligently Seeking God

Letting Go of Our Liabilities (June 16)

Letting Go of Our Liabilities (June 16)

Challenging Every Person to Take God More Seriously

Devotional Meditation - WordPoints

Devotional Meditation

Rather than thinking about God casually, meditation is a deep pondering of His truth. When we meditate devotionally, the facts about God are given more than a “passing glance.” We think about them intently and lovingly so their meaning can truly sink in.

Daily Devotional Books

Unfortunately, many of the best-selling devotionals are popular not because they produce greater devotion to God but because they give the reader a sugary “high.” They aim to make the reader feel better, but they do little to stimulate significant spiritual growth.

Devotion to God

Devotional strength must be built up by constant, disciplined practice over time. Paul reminded his young friend Timothy of this when he said, “Meditate on these things; give yourself entirely to them, that your progress may be evident to all” (1 Timothy 4:15).
