"(In) Mandarin Chinese ling xiu (leeng SHE-oo) refers to a Christian's daily devotional time. Ling means 'spirit' or 'soul.' Xiu means 'to repair.' In my notes I wrote 'devotional=spirit repair.' What a fitting way to describe our devotional time: repairing the soul by reading God's word and communing with Him."
