Bible Monday 1/2: Missing Eden

Psalm 33:1-22. New year, new song (verse 3): What's one attribute of God, or one blessing I have from him, that I can praise anew in this week of fresh starts?

Genesis 2:1-25. Attending to the stirrings and struggles of my own heart, what clues do I find that my true home is Eden, not this fallen world? 

Hebrews 3:12-19. Mile after mile on life's long road, where did I falter last year like the Israelites in the desert (verse 17)? How can I more fully partake of Christ this year (verse 14)?

John 1:19-28. How would others notice, by my deeds not my words, if I became deeply committed to making straight the way of the Lord (verse 23)?

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?
