Bible Saturday 10/15: Precious Personhood

Psalm 20:1-8. How would my outlook change for the remainder of this election season if my flag, my banner, really flew not in America's name but in God's (verse 5, KJV)?

Nehemiah 2:1-20. What present concern of mine may call for the wise restraint of "walking the wall" as I wait on God's direction and timing to plunge in? 

Philippians 1:1-11. Using this beautiful template of intercessory prayer, can I pause right now and apply it phrase by phrase to three people I don't usually pray for?

Luke 13:1-9. When the world (including many Christians) advocates abortion and euthanasia as though the human person is no more precious than pets or livestock, how can I witness to the contrary as Jesus does here?

These are some of the questions I asked myself in studying this morning's four readings from the  St. James Daily Devotional Guide. Click and see what you think. Where is your self-examination leading today?
