A big discovery!

From time to time, people ask if my books are available in audio format. I have regretfully told them they were not, except for Reading Between the Lines, which was released in print, e-book, Kindle, Apple Book, and CD formats. But this was at the end of the usefulness of CD technology for audiobooks.

But today, I discovered that my newest book, The Holy Spirit: A Commentary, is available in the audiobook format from Apple Books! All you need to do is tap on the Apple Book icon on your iPhone, iPad, or wherever you access the app. At the bottom of the screen, tap  on “Audiobooks.” Then, tap on “search,” enter “Daniel Segraves,” and the book will come up. If you wish, you can tap on “Preview” to hear a portion of the book before you decide to purchase it.

I’m thankful the book has been made available in this way from the Pentecostal Publishing House.

Daily Wisdom 256: Proverbs 12:9

Proverbs 12:9 (NKJV) — 9 Better is the one who is slighted but has a servant, Than he who honors himself but lacks bread.

Humility is better than pride. This verse speaks of those who are lightly esteemed or held in contempt, perhaps because of their humility. If they are able to provide for their needs and have someone to serve them, they are in a much better position than proud people who lack the basic necessities of life. By exalting themselves, they may drive away those who would help them.

Humility tends to draw the right people; pride tends to drive them away. No one was more humble than Jesus, yet He had many willing to serve Him. At the same time, He was despised by those who do not value humility. (See Isaiah 53:3.)
