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 5:1-12. When told to shout for joy at my love and trust in God (verse 11), how can I actually do that today in ways that are socially engaging and natural, not showy?
Genesis 10:1-32. Thinking about my family tree as far and wide as I'm aware of, what are its marked characteristics and its impact on others? How do God's fingerprints show up on my human heritage?
Hebrews 5:12 - 6:8. What mixture of milk and meat makes up my spiritual diet (verses 12-14)? How might a change of intake further my maturity as a Christian?
Matthew 3:13-17. What fresh teaching might God have for me today in this simple, familiar story of John and Jesus, to further my maturity as a Christian?
