Bible Thursday 12/8: Old & New

Psalm 37:1-40. What would it look like for me to be a little more meek today (verse 11)?  What would it look like If I thus came nearer to inheriting the earth?

Isaiah 43:1-28. What old things can God help me forget today? What new things shall I pray he puts in their place (verses 18-19)?

Revelation 12:13-17. If the woman here symbolizes both the Mother of our Lord and Mother Church, what would it look like for the earth to help her defeat the dragon (verse 16)?

Luke 23:39-49. How can studying Jesus' Passion help me participate more fully today in his Advent?

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?
