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 34:1-22. What are five things, each tasting different, that I enjoy? What are five things I could taste about God's goodness (verse 8)? Which do I need most today?
Exodus 28:1-43. Back then, why did it matter what was worn by ministers of the Lord? What became of that? Why do many people (and pastors) now purposely dress down for church?
I Corinthians 7:12-24. What examples have I seen of one marriage partner sanctifying the other as described here? How could my church better support its married members in so doing?
John 8:12-20. What darkness in me, or around me, most urgently needs light from Jesus today (verse 12)? Prayer point?
