How do you interact with the word of God? Do you rely solely on sermons? Sunday school parables? A straight-read through of the Bible? After many years growing in my faith, I’ve found that the best way for me to grow my interactions with the word of God is through the use of devotionals, which help me relate God’s teachings to my daily life. I’ve tried a lot of your typical devotionals, those written by church officials and motivational speakers. Recently, I’ve tried stepping outside my comfort zone into some “celebrity devotionals,” that is devotionals by famous people that offer a wholly unique way to approach both the world and that celebrity going forward. Unfortunately, it’s rare these days for celebrities to speak out about their faith, so check out these celebrity devotionals to help you further your connection with the Lord in a new way.
