Bible Saturday 7/22: Mary Magdalene

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 30:1-12. Verse 6 KJV, when has material prosperity made me spiritually complacent? How did it turn out? What did I learn? Current status?

Numbers 20:1-29. Here Moses' brother and sister, his companions through so much, meet death. Whose death has hit me hardest? How did God show up? Prayer point?

Song of Solomon 2:15 - 3:11. From this lover's adoration of King Solomon, what can I learn of God's design for human life?

John 20:11-18. From Mary's adoration of King Jesus, what can I learn of God's design for eternal life?
