THURSDAY APRIL 12
Obviously this is not a daily devotion. But it is nevertheless important.
We have been doing these daily devotions for over one year now. During the course of this year, I want to believe this has been important. On one hand, it has been beneficial to me. It changed my study time and personal devotion time. As crazy as it may seem, I actually do study the chapters before I write about them. On the other hand, I hope it has been at least somewhat beneficial to some of you. Periodically, I do get some feedback. And the feedback I have received has been basically positive.
Because the program we use to distribute these devotions has some pretty good analytics, it is obvious to us that fewer people are accessing these devotions. Although I never intended this to be a numbers game, I have wondered if these daily devotions are continuing to have the impact that they perhaps once did.
Please understand that I am not writing this as a backhanded way to get your compliments. But I am curious whether or not I need to continue these. If they are helpful, then perhaps it would be worthwhile to continue them. If they are not helpful, then it would be a waste of time to continue them.
The only way I know to really answer that question is to ask you guys that are on our mailing list for these daily devotions. If you could send me an email at with your opinion, I would greatly appreciate hearing from you. Please know that if you don’t see any value in continuing these, my feelings will not be hurt. I promise I will not take your response personally. I just need some honest feedback from the folks that, at some point, have opted into this process.
As a result of waiting on responses to this impromptu and unscientific survey, I will not be writing devotions for the next couple of days. So, please do not hesitate to contact me with your honest opinion of the value of these efforts. I look forward to hearing from you.
