Bible Wednesday 12/14: Recoil or Lean In?

Psalm 53:1-6 For the atheist and the debauchee, portrayed so grimly here (and in Paul's quotation, Romans 3:10), can at this holy season lean in with Christ's love, not recoil with distaste or self-content?

Isaiah 49:1-26. How might I, or someone I know, benefit from experiencing the motherly tenderness of God right now (verses 14-16)?

Revelation 15;1-8. What markers would show up in my life when I get "victory over the beast" (verse 2, KJV) or even begin to gain in that direction?

Mark 13:1-2. What mighty and irreplaceable structures (as it would seem) define my world but could soon come crashing down? Am I spiritually prepared for that?

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?
