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. What is my weakest area of moral self-knowledge (verse 12)? When has God given me a breakthrough on that? (Side note: Lincoln quoted verse 9 in his Second Inaugural.)
Genesis 43:1-34. When have I seen or experienced God's mercy in reconciling a deep family rift like the one among Jacob's twelve sons?
Romans 5:1-11. In my life, what's the best completed example of the chain of blessings Christ brings out of adversity (verses 3-5)? What's an example not yet completed, still in process?
Matthew 11:25-30. What's one thing ahead of me in this day that might be manifestly different if I truly yoked up with Jesus as he invites here?
