Lived up to headline: wisdom each day

This is a really cool devotional. Peterson pulls nuggets from all of his published texts to deliver a tight and salient series of God-honoring insights. This is not a prayer guide not is it a deep dive on any given subject. I found it useful as a reminder of God's truths presented in such a way as to make them fresh, compelling and contemplative.

Another excellent devotional. The downside to having started this and Lewis' book at the same time this time last year is that I now have to find new morning reading material.
A nice daily devotional.

“PAYING ATTENTION TO GOD We bless GOD, oh yes—we bless him now, we bless him always! PSALM 115:18, THE MESSAGE Prayer is the most thoroughly present act we have as humans, and the most energetic: it sockets the immediate past into the immediate future and makes a flexible, living joint of them. The Amen gathers what has just happened into the Maranatha of the about to happen and produces a Benediction. We pay attention to God and lead others to pay attention to God. It hardly matters that so many people would rather pay attention to their standards of living, or their self-image, or their zeal to make a mark in the world. The reality is God: worship or flee. THE CONTEMPLATIVE PASTOR” 0 likes
“The function of religion is not to make people feel good but to make them good. Love? Yes, God loves us. But his love is passionate and seeks faithful, committed love in return. God does not want tame pets to fondle and feed; he wants mature, free people who will respond to him in authentic individuality.” 0 likes
