I found this to be a great explanation of why daily devotional time is so important….
There is a purpose for daily devotional practices. We do it for a reason. There is a goal to it. We want to connect back to God who calls us each by name. We want to align our priorities with his. We want to make our individual stories part of his greater, larger, deeper story. We want to be transformed to be as he is so that we may love as he does so that, so graced, we might better understand and express his love for us and for all of creation. — From the book “Inwardly Digest. The Prayer Book as a Guide to a Spiritual Life” by Derek Olsen.
