Bible Friday 8/11: Angels

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 91:1-16. Verses 11-12, in what particular way do I need God's angels to guard me, guide me, even carry me, right now? If occurring today, what form would that take?

Joshua 4:1-24. What are some memorial stones erected in my heart and mind to attest experiences of God's faithfulness? How do I share these with family and friends?

II Peter 3:14-18. As Paul does with Peter here, when have I found spiritual fellowship with another Christian despite denominational, cultural, or theological differences between us?

Mark 11:20-26. When have I extended or received forgiveness with God's help, not just a human "it's okay"? Do I have unfinished business of that kind right now? Action point for today?
