Choice Gleanings (desk)
Every morning as believers around the globe lift up their hearts to God to begin their day, a familiar component of that process will be the Choice Gleanings calendar.
In 1922 William J. Pell began Gospel Folio Press. Becoming exercised about producing a daily devotional calendar, Choice Gleanings it was launched in 1940 and was an immediate success. Within a few years Gospel Folio Press found itself producing 40,000 calendars annually. Material for the calendars was gleaned from books, originally, but over time the calendar included more original writing than 'gleanings.' Today almost sixty writers from around the world contribute meditations to the Choice Gleanings calendar.
The 2018 calendar will be mailed worldwide so that, as for the last sixty-eight years, those who read it daily will gain encouragement and comfort in the situations and circumstances of life. For those who preferring an electronic version, they can subscribe to a daily email version of the calendar. Either way this is a wonderful instrument used by God to build up His people.

DAILY READINGS: Gen. 1:1 to 2:3; Job 1:1 to 2:10; Matt. 1
And she (Ruth) went, and came, and gleaned in the field after the reapers. Ruth 2:3
In Ruth’s day, gleaning was to gather the grain left by the reapers (Lev. 19:9-10). In its figurative sense gleaning means to gather knowledge and wisdom bit by bit. As a young believer, my Christian friends and I greeted each other by asking, “Where are you gleaning today?” We wanted to encourage each other to be in the Word. Daily reading of God’s Word often brings “choice gleanings”, golden surprises from God's heart to ours. As we start a new year, glean from the Word of God daily. —Robert Gentile

DAILY READINGS: Numbers 16:1-40; Proverbs 13; 1 Peter 5
The Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest. Joshua 1:9
Joshua and Israel were about to tread a difficult and dangerous path. They were to cross Jordan and engage formidable enemies in Canaan. Battles and strife lay ahead. It was then that God gave them this promise, to be with them "whithersoever they went". What a precious promise for the child of God today. God has guaranteed that whatever the circumstances of life—sunshine or shadow, pain or pleasure, success or failure, weeping or rejoicing, mountain or valley, that we will never ever be alone. May we step out into the unknown future with confidence and courage, knowing He is ever near. —W. H. Burnett
