Bible Monday 2/6: Fed on Tears

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 80:1-19. In what way are God's people "fed on tears" in our times (verse 5, KJV)? What's the lesson or the action point for me personally?..

Genesis 37:1-36. When have I provoked conflict by acting from ego as Joseph does here? What did God teach me from the experience?

Romans 2:12-24. What's an everyday example of the moral law naturally understood by the conscience of even those who don't know God (verses 14-15)?

Matthew 10:16-26. Why am I experiencing little or none of the persecution that Jesus foretold for his true followers? Action point?
