Some have asked, “When is the best time for my devotions? In the morning or in the evening?”
My answer to that is, “The best time is when you’re at your best!” If you’re a morning person, do your devotions in the morning. If you’re an evening person, do your devotions at night. The bottom line is: “Jesus deserves your best, so give Him the best part of your day!”
