Bible Tuesday 1/31: That Great Shepherd

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 68:1-35. How can I better submit my family to God this day (verses 5-6)? How can I extend some of the mercy of God to a broken family this day?

Genesis 31:1-55. How do all the feuds, crimes, and sins in Genesis, chapter by chapter at the very founding of our faith, teach us realism about fallen humanity?

Hebrews 13:16-25. How can I act and think each hour of today in closer touch with the crucified and risen Lord Jesus, one of his obedient sheep (verses 20-21)?

Matthew 9:9-13. If this dinner were held today, would Jesus deem me spiritually hungry enough to sit and eat with him, or not?
