Bible Sunday 1/29: Vanity Fair

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 24:1-10. What vanity, emptiness, or folly has tempted or distracted or seduced my soul in the past 24 hours (verse 4, KJV)?  What corrective shall I seek from God today?

Genesis 29:1-35. Why is monogamy better than polygamy? How do the differing marriage customs of the Old and New Testaments relate to Jesus' teaching that there is no marriage in heaven (Luke 20)? 

Hebrews 12:25 - 13:6. How does covetousness (verse 5) pervade our culture and influence me? What corrective shall I seek from God today?

Matthew 8:28-34. Is demon-possession still a problem in our own time and situation?  If so, has it anything to do with me?
