Studying this morning's four readings from the St. James Daily Devotional Guide (click to subscribe), I examined myself with these questions. Where is your self-examination leading today?
Psalm 25:1-22. What secret of the Lord is verse 14 referring to? Am I giving it the central place in my life that it surely deserves? Doing my part to make it known to others?
Genesis 16:1-16. Am I living in the keen awareness that God sees me at all times (verse 13)? How might I change as that awareness heightens?
Hebrews 9:1-10. Have I all the reverence and gratitude I should for the Jewish ceremonial system of old? What is the spiritual (not just historical) import of this passage for me today?
Matthew 5:21-30. Has the drastic self-correction of verses 29-30 ever operated on me or someone I know? What was the result? What's the lesson for this day before me right now?
