What is a Feed Reader?

A feed reader automatically checks for updates on websites that the user chooses. The content from many different websites is gathered into one place for easy reading by the user, saving the time that the user would spend visiting all the different websites involved. Feed readers with podcasting capabilities are also able to download media files and automatically load them onto media players like iPods.

What is a Podcast?

A podcast is an audio broadcast streamed across the Internet for users to download onto their computers and portable audio devices.

Subscribing to a specific podcast "feed" enables a user to automatically update their computer with the latest edition of a particular audio broadcast, known as a podcast "channel."

The word podcast combines the words "iPod" (Apple's popular portable MP3 device) and "broadcast" to describe the ability for anybody — from independent producers to large media corporations — to create audio broadcasts to share online.

    Amen.


    Wise words for today, Matthew.


    Absolutely well spoken. Thank you.


    May God bless Miracles #2 today!


    100% true! Ephesians 2:10.
    Blessings.


    Many small, flckering lights put together can make a powerful blaze that can light up the world.


    Thank you, Matthew, for serving us through this devotional reminder of the value of all kinds of service. Blessings.


    Good one. I am also enjoying Up! You are a busy writer. Thank you. I’ve passed your site to another today as we visited after church.


    You have some good messages, Matthew. I listened to your church service on Miracles last week, very interesting. I look forward to part two.


    Dear Matthew:
    Is it possible to receive your daily words of wisdom in UP.
    Let me know, if possible.


    This has to be one of the most important concepts in life – that serving others give purpose to our lives, as well as a sense of well-being and self-worth – such as no other activity can do. Thank you for putting it
    into words so easy to understand and remember.


    What a wonderful perspective. It is definitely a guideline to follow as we determine what our actions will be for the day.
    Thank you, Matthew.
    Blessings.


    Good one. I am also enjoying Up! You are a busy writer. Thank you.
    Thank you so much for today’s devotional on Purpose, Matt.
    I believe everyone needs something to love – something to do – and something to hope for.
    You said it all so very well! God bless.


    Greetings Matthew,
    Thanks for this meaningful morning devotional. So true that service to others gives a rewarding sense of satisfaction especially when you see positive results in the one you have helped. Also knowing you are doing what the Lord is directing you to do adds to the fulfillment of the purpose.
    Have been enjoying your “UP” a.m. devotionals too.
    Blessings,
    (B.C.)


    Thank you for this reminder. It is so important for everyone to do. I keep myself busy volunteering at church and other things, both here in Canada, and in winter as a snowbird in the US. It gives me so much gratitude to serve others.
    My church in Fl has a new focus to serve. Whenever there are 5 Sunday’s in a month, the fifth Sunday is devoted to service and as a congregation, following a short service of prayer, we go out into the community and nursing homes to serve others spreading our love. Sometimes it is just a project at the church like making response kits, crocheting sleeping mats for homeless or making a meal to share.
    I really think it’s a wonderful way to serve which I had never done before.


    I just got my purpose back two weeks ago teaching piano again. Your message is spot on!!
    Thank you.

    Hi Matthew,
    A very good devotional. You are so right, it is so important to have a purpose to get up, and there is indeed a lot of apathy in the world today. I pray almost daily that a change will come about.
    Thank you for writing.
