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 103:1-22. What would be the visible markers this day and this year of my youth being renewed by God's grace (verse 5)?
Proverbs 14:1-35. When have I been deceived and harmed by a "way that seemed right" (verse 12)? What did I learn about myself and God?
Romans 13;1-7. How does this famous passage reconcile with the right of revolution asserted in the Declaration of Independence? What more could my church be doing to guide us on such matters?
Matthew 4:1-11. Assuming Satan has similar, if not the same, designs on me as on Jesus, with what Bible texts can I repel that enemy today as he did?
