I love devotional books. I do. I have more than I could ever need and still accrue more of them. I love old ones from Puritan writers and new ones from favorite contemporary authors. I love ones based on specific books of the Bible and others based on books by current pastors, teachers, or theologians. I have devotionals for each day of the year, for particular seasons of life, and even holiday seasons.
As much as I love my devotionals, they are a supplement to and not a substitute for Bible reading. I use them in addition to reading God's word. They help increase my love for God and his word. They point me away from myself and to the One who gives me life.
Not everyone likes to use devotionals but if you do, here are a few of my favorites.
Do you have a favorite devotional?
