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 17:1-15. If my spiritual eye could look God in the face (verse 15), what might I see there to bless me? Face to face, what would he be offering me and asking of me today?
Exodus 5:1-23. When has it seemed that my obedience to God made things worse instead of better? How did it turn out? What did I learn?
I Peter 4:1-11. How can I and my church better express fervent charity among ourselves (verse 8, KJV)?
John 4:15-26. How can I and my church better glorify God as true worshippers in spirit and in truth (verse 23, KJV)?
