Bible Monday 4/3: The Big Two

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 31:1-24. What are my concerns about time, whether too long or too short, whether dreaded or regretted, that I can entrust to God’s hand today (verse 15)?

Zechariah 3:1-10. Where is Satan pressing me right now, that I can ask the Lord to rebuke him (verse 2)?

Galatians 5:16-26. From which work of the flesh do I need deliverance today? For which fruit of the Spirit shall I especially pray?

Matthew 22:34-40. What’s one small, practical thing I can do toward obeying Jesus’ two great commandments better today than I did yesterday?

To go deeper, see interpretive notes by Bible scholar Patrick Reardon for many of this week's readings.
