WordPoints books are what the old-timers used to call “daybooks” — books with a short reading for each day of the year.
- Brevity. The daily readings are concise and to the point, making it easier to read one every day.
- Suggestiveness. Although brief, the essays are highly concentrated. Packing a lot of meaning into a few words, they give us something to think about throughout the day, long after we’ve finished reading the essay itself.
- Discipline. Good things come from daily discipline — we need to have some growth-related things we do every single day. Since reading is one of the most profitable exercises we can engage in, daybooks are ideal tools for personal growth.
If you haven’t tried using a daybook as a part of your everyday routine, I invite you to try one of the WordPoints Daybook Series. These books will help you stay focused on what’s most important!
We inhabit a universe full of good things to admire. If we want to be powered by a great love for good things, there is no shortage of such things around us every day. And many of these come in the form of people. Let’s admire all that is truly admirable!
We find the strength to say “No” only when we have a more powerful “Yes” burning within us. Like Jesus, who “for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross,” we must endure our own crosses as they come to us. The “joy set before us” is the key.
By faith, we seek to please God because we love Him. It is faith that gives wings to love’s natural desire. Showing us not only that God can be pleased but how we may do so, faith gives true substance to love’s highest wish: the pleasure of our beloved God.
