Word for Today is part of an active ministry working in Jesus' Name that tries to take an earnest look at some of the depth and grandeur, as well as the undeniable truth, of God and His Holy Word. If it causes someone to discover other meanings and/or applications which may be applied to their circumstance, so much the better. That would simply show the Word at its wonderful work in the life of the hearer. In any such instances feedback will be appreciated, that more may be edified, and Grace be found more abounding to us all. Thanks for letting us share with you today. May love always abound in your life with the Lord!

The Word for Today Archives
Most editions include "Selah", commentary & notes.
The Psalms are often used for meditation,
inspiration, counseling- well, for everything that is good, to be sure!
There is a word found frequently among them that has passed through the
centuries and calls to us to take our time, carefully consider what
we are learning or reading, and consciously consider the meaning
Webster's New Collegiate Dictionary defines it thusly: "A term of uncertain meaning found in the Hebrew text of the Psalms and Habakkuk carried over untranslated into some English versions."
Simply reading it in the context of its usage, however, it readily appears to mean think soberly and sincerely about these things; that is to say, what is being read. Indeed, some modern Bibles define it to mean "pause, and consider these things". Used in the pages of Word for Today, it is used to offer commentary and insights into the Scripture being presented.
You are invited to submit your favorite Scripture passages, and your commentary and insights about them. It is hoped that Word for Today can be updated frequently, or enlarged in a form that will allow all who desire to share the wonderful things they find in God's Word to do so! It is a ministry that can be accomplished with your help, because we know the Lord is willing that it be done. The venue is in place and God is certain to continue His blessing of it - all that is missing is YOU!
Become a part of His blessing and share His Word and love through your personal ministry with those who need to know about it today.
