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 73:1-28. In what way is envy now an issue for me, or has it been in the past (verse 3)? What underlies that? What is God's remedy?
Genesis 34:1-31. We think sex is out of control in our times, but a story like this reminds us it always has been. What underlies that? What is God's remedy?
Romans 1:8-17. Do I live as unashamed of the gospel as Paul did (verse 16)? How can I prove it today?
Matthew 9:18-26. Seeing Jesus interrupted here first by a desperate man and then by a desperate woman, patiently helping both, how can I become a more interruptible Christian?
