Bible Friday 1/13: Fishers of Men

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 16:1-11. By what right can I share in David's assurance of not being destined for hell (verse 10)? Do I and my church take hell seriously enough? Do my family and friends? An action point?

Genesis 13:1-18. When have I let someone else have their way in a difficult clash of wills? How did it work out? What did I learn about trusting God?

Hebrews 7:1-10. According to verse 6:20, this obscure passage teaches me important things about Jesus. What are they and why does it matter to me today?

Matthew 4:18-25. Does the invitation to become fishers of men (verse 19) apply only to Jesus' apostles, or equally to you and me?  If the latter, how can I get better at it?
