Bible Thursday 2/2: Simeon and Anna

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 70:1-5. Is there a situation where I want God to hurry up, where I don't understand his delay (verses 1, 5)? Is it all right to feel that way?

Genesis 33:1-20. When has God resolved a conflict that I was dreading? What did I learn?

Haggai 2:1-9. When today's news tells of the nations being shaken, what reminder of God's sovereignty can I hang onto (verse 7)?

Luke 2:22-40. What can I learn about better loving Jesus from Mary and Joseph? From Simeon? From Anna?
