Bible Tuesday 2/14: Joseph Tells All

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 95:1-11. How might it benefit me if I would more often kneel when coming before God in praise, petition, or confession (verse 6)?

Genesis 45:1-28. As the drama concludes, how is Joseph's conduct Christlike? If what ways can he be said to foreshadow Jesus?

Romans 6:1-11. Has my former self really been crucified with Jesus (verse 6)? What was it like? What's the proof? Action point?

Matthew 12:9-14. In what ways does our contemporary culture of death cruelly mock Jesus' teaching, "How much is a man better than a sheep" (verse 12)?
