From the Editors

What an encouragement it is to read your letters and emails to Today in the Word. We pray that this devotional will encourage you to read and reflect on Scripture and that God will use the time in His Word to guide your life. Thank you also for giving generously to support this ministry. Because of your help, we can encourage thousands of readers to stay rooted in God’s Word.

Here are a few letters from our mailbox:

I love Today in the Word. I try my best to read it every day, and when I miss I double up to be sure I get the full impact and benefit. This is a very effective Bible study and personal, godly, enriching tool. Thank you so much to everyone responsible for this content and insight. It is so helpful! God bless you all!—Brian in Manchester, Conn.

Today in the Word is the first thing I do in the morning when I begin my Bible study. It always sets me off on the right foot for the rest of my day.—Linda in Chatsworth, Ga.

I am not sure of the date I started reading Today in the Word with my Bible in the morning, but it should be no surprise to all of you and hopefully a great encouragement that God has used it to teach, to train, to correct, and to sometimes rebuke me in my Christian life every single day since sometime in 1989. There are so many stories I could write a book, and maybe someday I will, but for now, be blessed all of you who have a hand and a heart in producing Today in the Word. I love you guys and am privileged to be part of your family. We’re gonna have a great time in glory!—Rick in Medina, Ohio

I try to read a devotion every day. This helps me to read the Bible every day. As it says, all Scripture is profitable.—Joseph in Highland Park, Ill.

Today in the Word is a great devotional. I’ve learned so much about people and history throughout the Bible. The Bible passages are so meaningful. I have decided to get it daily online. Saves postage!—Sarah in Santa Ana, Calif.

Thank you for Today in the Word. It is always good, always filling. “Forgiveness—A Gift to Give & to Receive” was an excellent devotion/study. Yes, we desperately need forgiveness. We have so much to be thankful for—so blessed! May God use us to be that sweet fragrance of Jesus’ forgiveness to others.—Lindy in Lakeland, Fla.
