Bible Wednesday 1/11: Fall of the Tower

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 12:1-8. Who are three prominent examples of the contagion of bad role models in today's amoral celebrity culture (verse 8)? Who are the polar opposites to those three?

Genesis 11:1-32. What lessons can our contemporary world, including the church, learn from the rise and fall of Babel?

Hebrews 8:1-13. If God has truly put his laws in my mind and written them on my heart (verse 10, KJV), how does that relate to legalism in religion and activism in politics?

Matthew 4:1-11. Imitating Jesus' quickness to refute the devil here with Scripture, what one verse from today's readings shall I keep ready for my defense against temptation in the coming hours?
