The term “devotional” might be familiar to you, but if you aren't sure what it means, we are here to help. Let's get more specific and define a daily devotional, like Today. A daily devotional provides a reading for every day of the year. They have a format, purpose, and provide a time for daily prayer and meditation.

Devotionals Provide a Purpose

The general purpose of a devotional is to encourage spiritual growth. Not all spiritual journeys are the same, so different devotionals serve different purposes. This includes individual devotions, group devotions, or family devotions. Some people prefer to journal their spiritual devotions to document their spiritual growth.
