Wednesday 8/31: Source of Liberty

Psalm 119:25-48. In this political season, how can I witness better to the link between God's precepts and human liberty (verse 45, compare John 8:32)?

Job 7:1-21. Having a God who invites my honesty, who will listen to my anguish and complaint (verse 11), what should I bluntly lay before him today?

I Timothy 5:1-16. This picture of Christian families and communities caring for their own seems to come from a lost world. What can I as one person do this day to begin recovering it?

Luke 5:12-16. What elements of expectant faith can I dwell with today, for my own health needs and those of others, as did this desperate leper before Jesus?

These are some of the questions I asked myself in studying this morning's four readings from the  St. James Daily Devotional Guide. Where is your self-examination leading today?
