Family time around the Word is always a difficult challenge. I think if I still had younger kids at home I’d give Dinner Table Devotions a shot. Here are the first 10 devotionals. (HT: Josh Harris)

Nancy Leigh DeMoss offers ten recurring, undergirding themes in her life/this ministry from the past ten years. Here’s numero uno:

Ministry flows out of intimacy with God and the overflow of a life that is full of His Spirit. There is no substitute—if we’re not full, we don’t have anything of eternal value to offer others. We can fake it or “perform”—for a while; our efforts may impress others and produce “results.” But that performance will only carry us so far, for so long. In the long run, our ministry will be empty and powerless—“wood, hay, and stubble.”
