And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the Lord, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. (Joshua 24:15)

What Does This Mean – “Daily Devotions?”
When Christians speak of “daily devotions,” they are referring to a time set aside each day for Scripture reading and prayer. A “devotional” is a published resource often used for such a purpose. To “do our devotions” or “have our devotional time” are common ways people speak of engaging in this activity. Sometimes, you may also hear people refer to their family time of prayer as “the family altar.”
