Purpose Driven Life is a modern daily devotion based around Rick Warren’s well known book of the same name. Indeed Rick Warren even writes some of the devotional entries.
It is not strictly a daily devotional in that you get five emails each week from Monday through to Friday. Each day covers one of the five key themes of the book as follows:
This is a great structure to use for a devotional to ensure that each day you are thinking about a different area of your life.
The style of writing is very much the same as the Purpose Driven Book, so if you enjoyed reading that then this would be a good choice of devotion. At the end of each devotion there is a section titled “What does this mean”. This gives a good little summary of the devotion and often includes application questions to get you thinking.
Getting the devotion
If you go to the devotion page of the Purpose Driven Life website you can read the entry for the day.
However the best way to read the Purpose Driven Life daily devotion is to subscribe to the Purpose Driven Life email service. This takes you to the Saddleback Church website (which funds Purpose Driven Life) where you can subscribe.
The subscription process is relatively laborious though as you have to provide your name, address and telephone number. I can understand they are interested in collecting these details, but it will put many people off signing up to the email.
The Purpose Driven Life devotion provides a well rounded variety of (almost!) daily articles to help in all areas of your life.
- Good quality articles
- Available via email
- Long sign up process for the email
