John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Best Devotionals for young women?

Recommended Posts

I'm a 20 something woman and I was wondering if anyone has any good recommendations for daily devotionals for me.


My go-to right now is The Confident Woman's Devotional by Joyce Meyer, but I always like to refresh and recharge with a new one from time to time. I've been reading that one for a while, so I was wanting to branch out! :)


Anything that you might have personal experience with would be great - I love those first hand recommendations!

Hi Amelia, my first thought for you were the daily devotionals of Elisabeth Elliot, but they are down right now at www.ElisabethElliot.org. So I will point you in the direction of Pastor Charles Spurgeon's, Morning and Evening Devotional which can be found online here, and Corrie ten Boom's, Each New Day devotionals, which can be found here.


I will leave you with a few of Elisabeth Elliot's quotes however (these are a small collection of her quotes that I put together last year for a few of my friends who were suffering through various trials):

Leave it all in the Hands that were wounded for you.


The secret is Christ in me, not me in a different set of circumstances.


God never withholds from His child that which His love and wisdom call good. He never denies our heart's desire except to give us something better.

Our vision is so limited we can hardly imagine a love that does not show itself in protection from suffering…. The love of God did not protect His own Son…. He will not necessarily protect us – not from anything it takes to make us like His Son.


God has promised to supply all of our needs. What we don't have now we do not need now.


God is God. Because He is God, He is worthy of my trust and obedience. I will find rest nowhere but in His holy will, a will that is unspeakably beyond my largest notions of what He is up to.

And finally, one of my favorites by Charles Spurgeon:

Thank you so much for the great recommendations and for taking the time to reply! I really resonated with Corrie ten Boom's devotional for today:


There is a hunger in our hearts that is never satisfied, except by Jesus. Do you feel lonesome and hungry? Do you have problems that you can’t solve? Do you feel chased, with no way out? Come to Him.


I've had a few things weighing on me lately, and I just felt like the verse that was on today's devotional was one that hit home, you know? I always love when that happens - it's like He is truly getting into my heart!
