Bible Sunday 9/11: Know Your Enemy

Psalm 8:1-9. What lie of the Enemy, shouted or murmured, must I silence with God's help today? What childlike answer is the Holy Spirit giving me to meet this need (verse 2 KJV)?

Job 18:1-21. Who is the shortest man in the Bible? Bildad the "shoe-height," get it? A lame joke from Sunday school long ago, proving  my questions here won't always be sober and serious.

Ephesians 4:17-24. What specific expressions of my old identity, before I knew Christ, must I put off today for the new? What would a little more renewing of my mind look like at this moment?

Luke 7:11-17. As Jesus in his compassion reached past a Mosaic taboo about corpses, who needs me to care enough to leave my comfort zone right now?

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?
