Today's Devotional


So then, while we have opportunity, let us do good to all people—Galatians 6:10 (NASB).

            Mercy through Jesus we have found,
              Free mercy from above ;
            May mercy move us to fulfil
              The perfect law of love.



A generous person will prosper—Proverbs 11:25 (NIV).

            Ah! not to self, ah! not to self,
              Let thinking souls devote their powers;
            But, spurning folly, ease, and pelf.
              For God and man employ their hours.



Do I practice daily kindnesses?—(read Genesis 40).

            Did I this day for small or great,
              My own pursuits forego,
            To lighten by a feather’s weight
              The mass of human woe?

About the author and the source

Daily Communion’s anonymous author gives for each day of the year a morning vow of obedience, a noontide help (described as a “midday barrier against worldliness”), and an evening voice of self-examination based on a Scripture verse.
