Bible Tuesday 10/17: Morning

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?

Psalms 5:1-12. Verse 3, by what attitudes and practices can I put God first every morning? Why is it important?

I Chronicles 26:1-32. What does doorkeeping, the porter’s work, mean materially and spiritually in my church? Am I participating?

Ephesians 3:1-13. Verse 8, why would this mighty apostle rate himself below the least of saints? Where am I on the scale of spiritual pride vs. humility?

Luke 11:24-28. Doorkeeping, further: where am I at risk of leaving the demons a vacancy? What’s the remedy? Action point?
