A Christmas gift

Christmas is almost here. 

Even as I type, I am picturing my blog readers doing so many different things. 

Maybe you are sitting in an airport waiting for your flight. 

Maybe you are checking emails right before you start completing the to-do list for the day. 

Maybe you are remembering past Christmas seasons and wishing this one was more like those. 

Whatever your day and your Christmas look like this year, you can know that I pray your Christmas day will be filled with the holy Presence of Christ.

A gift for you

I would like to give you a Christmas gift that I, and several of us at the ministry, have been working on. 

When you have a moment, I want you to go to the App Store on your cell phone and download my gift to you: the new (and free) Foundations Bible app!

My Christmas gift to you is something that will last all year and is called Wisdom Matters.

The readings don’t officially begin until January 1, but I wanted my readers to have advanced notice!

What is Wisdom Matters?

I did some checking and found that almost everyone checks their phone at night before going to bed. Wisdom Matters is an evening devotional I would love for you to have at the end of each day. 

In fact, the “tagline” says, “At the end of the day . . . Wisdom Matters.”

God called me to write and record Wisdom Matters because we need to end our days going to sleep with an important thought about God. Wisdom Matters is a devotional written to help us know God at deeper levels by offering us a meditation from his word each evening. 

In many ways, writing these devotions has been a blessing for me. On a personal level, this year has been intense, and dwelling on the timeless wisdom and truth of God’s word has been therapeutic. I was fascinated as I wrote how absolutely relevant God’s word remains thousands of years later. Wisdom matters most because it is timeless, God-authored truth.

We don’t lack “words” in our world, and information is always one “google” away.  But how do we process the information we learn? Do facts alone drive our decisions, or does God have a higher plan? 

I have often said, “In a sea of information, wisdom matters.”  

I want you, my readers, to know about Wisdom Matters first. Please receive this gift from me this Christmas. 

Beginning January 1, a new devotion will arrive on your phone around 8 p.m. CST, and maybe you can get in the habit of making God’s word part of your final thoughts for the day.  

I believe he will speak his thoughts and even author a dream or two if you do. He has certainly been speaking to my heart as I write these!

I wish you a blessed and Merry Christmas

Whatever your Christmas season looks like this year, know that I, and all of us who serve the Foundations ministry, want to wish you a joy-filled and Christ-centered Christmas. Jesus truly is the most wonderful gift we could ever receive! 

James 1:17 reminds us that “every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.”  

“Thanks be to God for his inexpressible gift!” (2 Corinthians 9:15).

We truly wish you a blessed and merry Christmas!
