“Olivier has listened to the Scripture and resonated with these brief unique and original responses. They provide us perfect opportunities to engage and respond in our own new ways. He does not teach us what to think about the Bible but rather how to engage and think about it.”
Michael Card – Recording Artist and Author
I don’t exactly recall how I decided to do so, but one day I started to select one or two verses that would particularly minister to me that day, out of my daily devotions. Then, I would write a very short commentary from a Jewish perspective, expounding the main thought of that passage and posting it on all my social networks. It eventually became known as “The One-Minute Devotional by Olivier Melnick.”
For well over a decade, I have continued to publish my daily devotionals and I make a point to keep them short. People have repeatedly told me how they appreciated the fact that these were quick to read, and yet all had at least one thought that could be carried throughout the day. Let’s face it, we live in a consumer world, bombarded with messages and images, and our attention span has been exponentially reduced over the years.
Additionally, I have created a section, titled “Dig Deeper” that includes a few verses related to the daily selection, if one desires to read/study a bit more. My prayer is that you would continue to grow in the Lord as you spend time each day in His Living Word. Be blessed.
