Our Daily Bread is a high quality modern daily devotional let down by limited availability.

our daily bread devotion
Our Daily Bread is a modern daily devotion provided by RBC ministries. It is well known and respected and is available to be delivered free to people in USA and Canada. The devotions would not even take five minutes to read, and are generally of a high quality

At the bottom of each devotion it also gives a little quote that is related to the devotion just read. Finally, you also get the bibles verses that will allow you to read through the bible in one year. It is one of the simpler reading plans and simply starts at Genesis in January and ends at Revelation in December.

Getting the devotion

The easiest way to access the devotion is to go to the main page of the website each day.

You can also subscribe to the RSS feed. However, the feed does not give you the verse or even the full devotion text so it is relatively useless. If you own a pda or Pocket PC, you can also download Our Daily Bread directly to these each day. I don’t know if this suffers from the same problem as the RSS Feed.

You can listen to Our Daily Bread directly on the website via the main page, or even subscribe to the podcast. The podcast does sound like an automated voice (although I may be wrong!), but nonetheless this is a useful addition.

If you live in USA you can receive Our Daily Bread at home by sending your complete name and postal address to their office:
RBC Ministries
PO Box 2222
Grand Rapids, MI 49501
(616)-974-2210

or in Canada write to:
RBC Ministries
PO Box 1622
Windsor, ON N9A 6Z7

As far as I can tell, you cannot have it delivered elsewhere. There is also no email version that I could locate which is a shame as it really limits the number of people that can view it. It is possible it is buried somewhere in the website but I dug around for ages and couldn’t find it. Unfortunately that was compounded by the fact their contact form was not working so I could not ask them where it may be!

It does seem strange that such a well known devotion would not take the relatively easy steps to make the RSS feed fully functional, or create an emailable version. These oversights really limit the number of people that will benefit from Our Daily Bread.

Summary

Our Daily Bread is a high quality modern daily devotional let down by limited availability.

Strengths

  • Well written articles
  • Free hard copies available in USA and Canada
  • Available via podcast

Weaknesses

  • No email version
  • The RSS version provided is of limited use.

    i am so glad to be a prayer member of your ministries
    which he has given us the strength and the wisdom. working very faithfully for his kingdom because THE HARVEST IS PLENTY BUT THE WORKERS ARE FEW. but god gave me a great burden to fulfill his task. i was well pleasured and dedicated for the commission which god has given to me. so i am writing you again that we have children and youth –Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” so if it is possible we request you please send some free booklets,bibles and daily bread(children, youth and adults) , which will be a blessing for all of us. please pray for our church and we too. please support us because we are weak in financially..but strengthen in christ.
    reply us soon….
