New Devotional: Songs For Your Path

New Devotional: Songs For Your Path

I’m happy to announce the release of Songs for Your Path, a 180-day devotional that explores the joy, wisdom, and hope of the Psalms. I trust you’ll find it a friendly guide for the path that God has set for His children.

The book grew from my personal journey through the Book of Psalms. In these pages I’ve recorded my glimpses of God’s glory, the wisdom of His righteousness, and the joy of His presence.

An Attractive Lie

An Attractive Lie

God is more concerned about who we are than what we do. We can try to do right things and yet still not be right. As Isaiah 64:6 describes it, anything good that we try to do in our own power looks like a dirty, filthy rag to God.

In Ecclesiastes 7:15-18 Solomon says that he’s seen two odd things in his life. The first thing is an outwardly righteous person who dies early, perhaps because of all the effort spent doing right. The second odd thing is a wicked person who, despite being wicked, lives a long time. Solomon warns against both extremes. Wickedness leads to spiritual destruction, and righteous acts can be a waste of your time and your life. No matter which route you choose, you’ll perish without God.
