Bible Friday 2/17: Good Treasure

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 107:1-32. What specific things is my soul hungry for (verse 9), if I were to describe the kinds of spiritual nourishment I most desire from God?

Genesis 48:1-22. When have I had to be reminded, as Joseph is here, that birth order and other worldly rankings are not definitive in God's economy?

Romans 7:13-25. What has been my experience of two inner selves struggling between good and evil? How do things stand right now? Action points?

Matthew 12:31-37. Why is there no forgiveness for blasphemy against the Holy Ghost (verse 31, KJV)? Different standard for the Father and the Son? What's the warning here for me personally?
