“For He says, ‘Order on order, line on line, line on line, a little here, a little there’” (Isaiah 28:10).
This daily devotional thought originally began four years ago in the desire to have a continuing role in the spiritual formation of my son while off at college. While I knew he wouldn’t read some lengthy treatise from his Dad each day, I knew that a bible verse and three or four lines of comment would be more realistic. In fact, this is the most effective teaching method for retention and learning. Few of us can block off large segments of our day to read or study as we might like, but we all have 5, 10, 15 minute bites of time throughout the day that, when used constructively toward the nourishment of our faith, has a very real cumulative effect. Spiritual food is to be taken in bites not blocks.
