Bible Wednesday 10/26: Godly Leaders

Psalm 119:49-72. When has affliction helped bring me closer to God (verses 67, 71)? How are the lessons I learned then, applicable in my life right now?

Nehemiah 13:1-31. Coming to the end of several weeks' study of Nehemiah and Ezra, masterful godly leaders under a godless regime, what guidance do I find for church and state in this election and beyond?

Jude 1-11. After so many centuries of apostasy and schism, how would I describe to an inquirer in a winsome sentence or two, "the faith which was once delivered to the saints" (verse 3, KJV)?

Luke 16:1-9.  In verse 8, what's commendable about the steward's behavior? What did Jesus mean about the world's people being wiser than God's people? Any application to America right now?

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?
