When I began my walk of faith 39 years ago, I armed myself with two essential—or what I thought were essential—tools: my King James Bible, and Mountain Trailways For Youth devotional. I read each faithfully each day. Wasn’t that what Christians were supposed to do? I was told we were. So I did.
Today I have around twenty five printed Bibles in my home (yes, including King James) and more at my disposal online. And I have a number of devotional and inspirational books within arm’s reach if I so choose to refer to those. But I have come to rely on one or two Bibles (and one of these really took me by surprise!) and a couple of devotionals. I’ll share those with you this afternoon, but first I want to hear from you. When you sit down to spend time in meditation/contemplation/prayer, what resources do you find most helpful? What others have you tried and put aside?
There are no right or wrong answers here. I just want to hear what you find helpful for you.
And then check back this afternoon to see how your selections match up with mine.
