There are more than 7 billion people on this planet. What can you do to make the world a better place?
Give yourself to something bigger.
Today is Giving Tuesday, a social movement where people give their time, money, or influence to a cause they feel passionate about. Giving Tuesday is a great opportunity to maximize the impact your life can have: by inspiring others to act with you.
We’re already helping people all over the world connect with the life-changing power of God’s Word. The Bible App is free, and has been installed in every country on Earth, on more than 350 million unique devices. But we’re just getting started.
Join with the global YouVersion Community as we set out to make a positive impact for our generation and beyond.
Then share your story with others on social media. Encourage your friends and family to join you using the hashtag #GivingTuesday. Let’s do this together:
Studies have shown that people who practice gratitude report experiencing more joy and pleasure, express more compassion and generosity towards others, and are even less likely to get sick.1 But it can be hard to sustain that spirit of thankfulness, especially when holiday busy-ness distracts you from the celebrations going on around you.
Here’s an easy way to set a daily gratefulness reminder: Start a Plan from our special collection of Thanksgiving-focused devotionals. Plans feed you a little Scripture every day, giving you a few moments to reflect, recharge, and hear from God’s Word.
Today is International Day of the Bible, the day set aside for Christians all over world to take a few moments to read or listen to passages from the Bible together with friends. Wherever you are today at noon (your local time), we hope you’ll participate.
And Spread the Word.
Pick one of the following ways to invite your friends to join you in celebrating this special day:
“My mind was completely broken. And, in those dark days I couldn’t see a way out. Hearing the Word of God was growing my faith, and it was amazing. Through that, I found healing. When I had nowhere else to go, He showed up in a real way.”
The Bible offers hope and wisdom for every challenge we face, no matter how big it seems (or how small). And, when we listen to God’s Word every day, He can completely transform our lives.
In the video above, see how this simple practice led to spiritual, physical, and emotional healing for one veteran and his family, as he journeyed through Post-Traumatic Stress and Traumatic Brain Injury.
Daily Hope and Healing
This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. It leads us through the curtain into God’s inner sanctuary.
By giving you just a little to read, watch, or listen to each day, Plans help you stay anchored in God’s Word, especially during life’s storms.
