Twitter and the Daily Devotionals

A comment from ShoreThings on my Buddha Machine post has led me into yet another twitter-related post. ShoreThings came to the post based on the title, which popped up in twitter, thinking it would be about the tinybuddha twitter account. Tinybuddha offers regular nuggets of Buddhist wisdom and related quotes. Here's the latest:
"Do not overrate what you have received, nor envy others. He who envies others does not obtain peace of mind." ~Buddha
That led me to wonder what twitter devotionals might exist. So I have done some poking around and found, in no particular order:
  • Bible In a Year
    Screw the rules & traditions, just get on with sharing the love, healing and power of Jesus Christ with those around you http://ow.ly/1JI
  • The Daily Tao
    A good artist lets his intuition lead him wherever it wants.
  • ESV Daily Verse
    In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so
  • Daily Zen
    "It is better to practice a little than talk a lot."
  • Daily Buddhism
    “Neither from itself nor from another, Nor from both, Nor without a cause, Does anything whatever, anywhere arise.”
  • Daily Bible Promises
    Store up for yourselves treasures in heaven ... where thieves do not break in and steal. Matt 6:20 http://is.gd/eZoS
I didn't find any daily Koran verses, but twitter limits searches per day and I ran out before completing my poking around.

I know there must be others. Anyone have any recommendations?

Mike, nice list! I didn't know they limited searches. How many is the limit? Can you Google's site search? I've not tried yet.

I tried googling for combinations of words and twitter, but not site search. I was also running out of time to play.
