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 19:1-14. Verse 14, honestly appraising myself, what habit of speaking displeases God? What pattern of my thoughts or emotions? How shall I amend these in 2018?

Revelation 21:1-8. Verse 6, in my life right now, what's the greatest thirst I bring to the Lord? How shall I go about accessing the water promised here?
Matthew 2:16-23. Is guidance from an angel in a dream "for Christ's sake" available to me as it was to Joseph? What's required of me to receive and recognize that?
