Psalm 137:1-9. Verse 4, famous as Israel's lament in exile, makes me ask myself: Do my circumstances determine my trust in God, or vice versa? Am I a thermometer or a thermostat?
Isaiah 31:1-9. What's one little homemade idol that I can put off, or starting putting off, this very day (verse 7)?
Revelation 5:1-14. What immediate application and benefit can I make today of Jesus being to me both Lion and Lamb (verses 5-6)?
Luke 22:14-23. As a Protestant, remembering Jesus in the bread and wine at most once or twice a month, how can I make the Eucharist more of a daily focal point of my love for him?
