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 19:1-14. Verse 14, if I pray this in the morning and review it in the evening, by what yardstick will I measure how "acceptable in God's sight" my words and thoughts were?
I Chronicles 10:1-14. Verses 4 & 14, who killed Saul, himself or the Lord? What's my understanding of God's view of suicide? What does the suicide movement say about our times?
II Corinthians 6:11-18. Verses 14 & 17 KJV, what guidance can I take from this about "unequally yoked" and "be separate"? Am I more at risk of being too much in the world or too removed?
Luke 8:19-25. Does this story refute those who venerate the Virgin Mary? Who is Mary to me? Why does it matter?
