Resolve to love this year

you cannot love without giving. Amy Carmichael

Matthew 22:36-39 CSB

And one of them, an expert in the law, asked a question to test Jesus.

“Teacher, which command in the law is the greatest?”3

He said to him, 

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.

This is the greatest and most important command. 

 The second is like it:

Love your neighbor as yourself.

I hope you watch and enjoy this video, I think it has a powerful message. Whatever you have resolved to do this year

  • quit smoking
  • lose weight
  • exercise more
  • read books
  • finish school

why not add LOVE to the list? It might be the easiest-or the hardest-to accomplish.

Daily Audio Bible: listen, learn, live, love

If you’re making new year’s resolutions about eating, exercising, saving money, or listening to your spouse better,  here is one I  hope you will try.

Listen to or read the Bible  this year.  There are many ways to read the Bible but I invite you to join me in listening to the Bible at Daily Audio Bible.  


Brian Hardin reads the Bible every single day- a selection from the

  • Old Testament,
  • New Testament,
  • Psalms, and
  • Proverbs

so that he completes the Bible in one year. He and his team offer a unique Bible reading/listening opportunity.

If you don’t know much about the Bible, don’t worry. You will when the year is over.

Brian doesn’t just read the Bible; he

  • explains it,
  • points out its relevance to our world today,
  • encourages us to apply it to our lives and
  • to share its good news with our friends and family.

Besides English, several other languages are available, including Spanish, French, Chinese, Arabic, Portuguese, and Japanese.


There are special versions for


a daily Psalm and a daily Proverb

and a Chronological version-reading the books of the Bible in the order the events happened.

From the DAB Core Values 

In all that we do we have the goal of irreversible change.

It’s not education, though that certainly happens,

it’s not inspiration, though that may be a result and

it’s not encouragement, though we hope it happens…

It’s irreversible change – the transformation of hearts and lives that in turn empowers an awake and alert heart to influence those within their sphere of influence for irreversible change.

One of the best parts -DAB offers this wonderful opportunity free of charge.

You pay nothing for the app and use of the web site.

Of course, it costs money to produce something of this quality;  generous donations and the sale of books and other items on the website fund the project.

So please use the links above to check it out- you have nothing to lose. I’ll check in with you in a few weeks to ask how it’s going or you can let me know now.
