I have followed in my father’s footsteps in many parts of my life. I loved spending my childhood outdoors and fishing like he did. I followed him into a long career in the military. I retired from the military and took up golf as a hobby just like he did. But the one thing that I learned from him and I believe is the most important footstep of his that I followed in is starting every single morning with a devotional from Our Daily Bread. My Dad keeps his Bible on the kitchen counter with his Our Daily Bread devotional stuck inside it. Every morning as he sits and eats his breakfast he reads from God’s Word. He taught me that it’s important to start your day with not only human nourishment, but with Godly nourishment from His Word. So, just like my Dad, before I do anything else each morning, I read Our Daily Bread. I prefer the online version but it doesn’t matter if it’s read on paper or online. Our Daily Bread is so incredibly important to my life and to the lives of so many people in this world. I’m grateful for my Dad’s examples in my life and I’m thankful that there are people like you who supply us with daily lessons from God’s Word.
