  1. Live to Serve

    Live to Serve

    After ten-year-old Chelsea received an elaborate art set, she discovered that God used art to help her feel better when she was sad. When she found out that some kids didn’t have art supplies readily available, she wanted to help them. So when it was time for her birthday party, she asked her friends not to bring her gifts. Instead, she invited them to donate art supplies and help fill boxes for children in need.

    Later, with her family’s help, she started Chelsea’s Charity. She began asking more people to help her fill boxes so she could help more kids. She has even taught art tips to groups who have received her boxes. After a local newscaster interviewed Chelsea, people started donating supplies from all over the country. As Chelsea’s Charity continues sending art supplies internationally, this young girl is demonstrating how God can use us when we’re willing to live to serve others.

    Chelsea’s compassion and willingness to share reflects the heart of a faithful steward. The apostle Peter encourages all believers in Jesus to be faithful stewards as they “love each other deeply” by sharing the resources and talents God has given them (1 Peter 4:8–11).

    Our small acts of love can inspire others to join us in giving. God can even rally supporters to serve alongside us. As we rely on God, we can live to serve and give Him the glory He deserves.

  2. Studying the Scriptures

    Studying the Scriptures

    J. I. Packer (1926–2020), in his classic work Knowing God, spoke of four well-known believers in Christ whom he called “beavers for the Bible.” Not all were trained scholars, but each one exercised great care to know God by gnawing into the Scripture, like a beaver digs in and gnaws away at a tree. Packer further noted that knowing God through Bible study is not just for scholars. “A simple Bible reader and sermon hearer who is full of the Holy Spirit will develop a far deeper acquaintance with his God and Savior than a more learned scholar who is content with being theologically correct.”

    Unfortunately, not all who study the Bible do so with humble hearts with the goal of getting to know the Savior better and becoming more like Him. In Jesus’ day there were those who read the Old Testament Scriptures, yet they missed the very One they spoke of. “You study the Scriptures diligently because you think that in them you have eternal life. These are the very Scriptures that testify about me, yet you refuse to come to me to have life” (John 5:39–40).

    Do you sometimes find yourself stumped as you read the Bible? Or have you given up studying the Scriptures altogether? Bible “beavers” are more than Bible readers. They prayerfully and carefully gnaw away at Scripture in ways that open their eyes and hearts to see and love Jesus—the One revealed in it. 

  3. Crumbled from Within

    Crumbled from Within

    When I was a teenager, my mom painted a mural on our living room wall, which stayed there for several years. It showed an ancient Greek scene of a ruined temple with white columns lying on their sides, a crumbling fountain, and a broken statue. As I looked at the Hellenistic architecture that had once held great beauty, I tried to imagine what had destroyed it. I was curious, especially when I began studying about the tragedy of once great and thriving civilizations that had decayed and crumbled from within.

    The sinful depravity and wanton destruction we see around us today can be troubling. It’s natural for us to try to explain it by pointing to people and nations that have rejected God. But shouldn’t we be casting our gaze inwardly as well? Scripture warns us about being hypocrites when we call out others to turn from their sinful ways without also taking a deeper look inside our own hearts (Matthew 7:1–5).

    Psalm 32 challenges us to see and confess our own sin. It’s only when we recognize and confess our personal sin that we can experience freedom from guilt and the joy of true repentance (vv. 1–5). And as we rejoice in knowing that God offers us complete forgiveness, we can share that hope with others who are also struggling with sin.

  4. When to Sacrifice

    When to Sacrifice

    In February 2020, as the COVID-19 crisis was just beginning, a newspaper columnist’s concerns struck me. Would we willingly self-isolate, she wondered, changing our work, travel, and shopping habits so others wouldn’t get sick? “This isn’t just a test of clinical resources,” she wrote, “but of our willingness to put ourselves out for others.” Suddenly, the need for virtue was frontpage news.

    It can be hard to consider others’ needs while we’re anxious about our own. Thankfully, we’re not left with willpower alone to meet the need. We can ask the Holy Spirit to give us love to replace our indifference, joy to counter sadness, peace to replace our anxiety, forbearance (patience) to push out our impulsiveness, kindness to care about others, goodness to see to their needs, faithfulness to keep our promises, gentleness instead of harshness, and self-control to lift us beyond self-centeredness (Galatians 5:22–23). While we won’t be perfect at all this, we’re called to seek the Spirit’s gifts of virtue regularly (Ephesians 5:18).

    Author Richard Foster once described holiness as the ability to do what needs to be done when it needs to be done. And such holiness is needed every day, not just in a pandemic. Do we have the capacity to make sacrifices for the sake of others? Holy Spirit, fill us with the power to do what needs to be done.

  5. A Time to Speak

    A Time to Speak

    For thirty long years, the African American woman worked faithfully for a large global ministry. Yet when she sought to talk with co-workers about racial injustice, she was met with silence. Finally, however, in the spring of 2020—as open discussions about racism expanded around the world—her ministry friends “started having some open dialogue.” With mixed feelings and pain, she was grateful discussions began, but wondered why it took her colleagues so long to speak up.

    Silence can be a virtue in some situations. As King Solomon wrote in the book of Ecclesiastes, “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens . . . a time to be silent and a time to speak” (Ecclesiastes 3:1, 7).

    Silence in the face of bigotry and injustice, however, only enables harm and hurt. Lutheran pastor Martin Niemoeller, jailed in Nazi Germany, confessed that in a poem he penned after the war. “First they came for the Communists,” he wrote, “but I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist.” He added, “then they came for” the Jews, the Catholics, and others, “but I didn’t speak up.” Then finally “they came for me, and by that time there was no one left to speak up.”

    It takes courage—and love—to speak up against racism and injustice. Seeking God’s help, however, we recognize the time to speak is now.

  6. Insight from the Spirit

    Insight from the Spirit

    As the French soldier dug in the desert sand, reinforcing the defenses of his army’s encampment, he had no idea he would make a momentous discovery. Moving another shovel-full of sand he saw a stone. Not just any stone. The Rosetta Stone, containing laws and governance from King Ptolemy V written in three languages. That stone (now housed in the British Museum) would be one of the most important archaeological finds of the nineteenth century, helping to unlock the mysteries of the ancient Egyptian writing known as hieroglyphics.

    For many of us, much of Scripture is also wrapped in deep mystery. Still, the night before the cross, Jesus promised His followers that He would send the Holy Spirit. He told them, “But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come” (John 16:13). The Holy Spirit is, in a sense, our divine Rosetta Stone, shedding light on the truth—including truths behind the mysteries of the Bible.

     While we are not promised absolute understanding of everything given to us in the Scriptures, we can have confidence that, by the Spirit, we can comprehend everything necessary for us to follow Jesus. He will guide us into those vital truths.

Socialism doesn’t work. You should read further. As a result of selling all their possessions to support other people they eventually ran out of other peoples money. Paul had to take up a collection for them because they became needy as a result of this socialistic practice.

Freezing

My husband and I read ODB every morning after breakfast. Im sorry to report that on most mornings it freezes up and we cannot finish the reading. I have deleted the app & then downloaded it again but we still have this same frustrating issue. Please advise me on what else I might do to correct the problem.
I used the hard copy of ODB for many years but chose the on line app as a more environmentally friendly alternative. I would think it might be my internet server, but we do not have this problem on any other app & it appears others are experiencing the same issue. Maybe it can be addressed soon.
We are indeed grateful for the inspiring & timely devotions & those who write & produce this publication. We have gotten to “know” the writers & can sometimes guess who is writing from the content. These Godly & talented people have become our “friends”! Thank you for providing these devotions that help us focus on spiritual ideas that encourage us in our walk.

Love the app, when it works

Ok, this is really getting annoying! When the app received its newest update version the app would not open! Realize everyone that updated to the new version was also experiencing the same thing! Wrote a review and the developers advised to delete the app. Once that was done the app worked. Now as of April 1, 2021 the app is blank for today’s reading, and when you click on the month it opens and the spinning wheel just continues to spin like it’s trying to open! VERY FRUSTRATING!!!! I thought it was a April fool joke but this is getting annoying because the next day it’s the same! Someone on the develop team is/has been slacking on working out the quirks to this app!!!

And other main issue is when the new version was updated you all took away the motivation count of how many days being read! This was a cool feature and very motivating!! WHY?!??! Not liking none of this. And when mentioned about the day count on my last review complaint, the developers only address the crashing of the new version, and failed to mentioned about the day count. Could address that as well please?!?!?!? God bless!!!

Hi. Thanks for your feedback. We apologize for the inconvenience. Our development team has created an update to fix several issues. Please remove and reinstall the App. This should solve the problem. If you still need help feel free to contact [email protected]

Great devotions - some bugs in app

I've used the Our Daily Bread devotions for many years now and enjoy them a lot! I will frequently bookmark the ones that speak to me and share them at the beginning of church meetings.

I do have one issue and one request. The app will freeze if I try opening it at certain times of the day - I'm not sure if that's when it has the heaviest load and thus has trouble downloading the devotion or what. The second is that I find the "You read x days in a row!" counter very demoralizing. I only use the app as part of my weekday routine so every week I'm starting over and feeling like a failure since I can never get over 5. I would love to see an option added to be able to turn that off. Some people may appreciate that extra bit of motivation, but for others, it's very guilt producing - not what you want from a devotion app that is supposed to build your faith up.

Thanks for listening!

We truly appreciate your feedback jkaz23. The freezing may be due to app cache, have you tried clearing it lately? We have passed your second comment onto our development team for review. If you need more help please feel free to contact us at [email protected]

GR0119Lamborn.JPGEmily Zoladz | The Grand Rapids PressLes Lamborn, of Grand Rapids, has been the voice of Our Daily Bread Radio for 30 years. Lamborn broadcasts from RBC Ministries on Kraft Avenue SE.

GRAND RAPIDS — Radio listeners may not recognize Les Lamborn's face, but they'll certainly recognize his voice. Lamborn is the voice of Our Daily Bread Radio, the audio version of the popular devotional "Our Daily Bread," and he is celebrating his 30th year as the voice of the program that reaches around the world.

Lamborn recorded his first Our Daily Bread Radio program in February 1981, a job he has held without break since he was hired by Grand Rapids-based RBC Ministries. He was first to synchronize the print version of the devotional with the audio version, allowing listeners to hear as well as read the daily message of faith.

“Doing the program forces me to read Scripture, forces me to read to understand the point of each devotional,” said Lamborn, 65. “I try to do each one with drama, to create a theater of the mind instead of just reading it flat.”

Lamborn produces both two-minute and five-minute versions of the program, adding background music when needed and the occasional character voice. Character voices are no hardship for Lamborn; he started his career doing voices for Moody Radio’s Fables of Faith in the 1970s. He is also an accomplished ventriloquist, performing locally and creating his own dummies.

History of the show

Our Daily Bread Radio began in 1960, then went off the air for a number of years before its revival in the 1970s. Lamborn began his tenure in 1981 by producing 10-minute programs, which were discontinued in favor of the shorter versions.

He has seen technology move from cutting and splicing tapes to digital editing, from sending out cassette tapes to radio stations to digital recordings available via the website and MP3 players. Our Daily Bread Radio is available five days on week via radio stations and every day online.

ON AIR

Listen to Our Daily Bread Radio, WGNB 89.3 FM at 6:05 a.m. on weekdays and every day online.

Programs are translated into several languages, including Spanish, Portuguese and Chinese, and recorded onto cassettes to be used by those unable to read the printed version.

Lamborn also created a database that includes all “Our Daily Bread” devotionals ever printed, categorized by topic, author, key words, etc.

“For listeners, Our Daily Bread Radio whets their appetites to read Scripture,” said Lamborn. “It helps them think about the spiritual impact on their lives, and perhaps prompts spiritual growth as a person.”

Lamborn, who grew up near Pennsylvania Amish country, said about his long career, “I never thought a farm kid from Pennsylvania would make good. That’s God’s doing; I just did what God put in front of me.”

We got there to the final, he went out with us, it was dark there, and this guy turned out to be a former classmate of my friends, it. Took 10 minutes to walk from the bus stop to the house, he accompanied us, took me to talk, I gave him an eye I also liked how he offered to take a walk, I didn't mind, but my friend was against it, because I had to spend the night with her, he asked me to leave, it was one in the morning, we stood at the entrance, hugged, kissed.

me alreadyI wanted to see him off when it started to rain, he offered to stay with him, but I was afraid because I didn't know him well, but agreed, since. My friends knew him well, we went to him, then they started kissing, I realized that he wanted mehe began to undress me, I don't know why, but I did not resist, maybe because I wanted to for a long time, I told him that I was a virgin, he told me not to be afraid, then I feel how he starts to enter me, the sensations are unpleasant, it stings.

we did it.
