We post a Forward Day by Day Meditation for every day of the year - and we invite you to consider them and talk about them here. If you'd like to comment, please register for an account at Facebook.

You can also find the past week's Meditations in the box at right (or below, for mobile users), or search for previous entries on the Archives page.
Luke 11:9 So I say to you, Ask, and it will be given you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened for you.
Imagine not being able to read a letter from your daughter or understand a medical directive; imagine growing up without books or being afraid to walk into
a library. Street signs and checking accounts alike would be gibberish. And jobs? So many doors would be closed to you. Even in our university town, the director of the literacy volunteer program has a long list of people waiting to be tutored. We all have skills, like reading, that we take for granted. In the simple act of sharing them, we show our love for our neighbors and open the door to Christ himself.
