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?
Psalms 121:1-8. Verses 1, 2, is there a current concern on which I need to lift my eyes upward for God's help instead of focusing downward on my circumstances?
I Chronicles 19:1-19. When has my kindness been met with ingratitude or spite, as King Hanun treated David? Have I ever done the same? What personal rift needs my prayers today?
II Corinthians 12:1-10. Verse 9 KJV, how have I learned that God's strength is made perfect in my weakness? Could that be the key to some current challenge I am facing?
Luke 10:1-12. Verse 4, how does this "travel light" admonition apply to my Christian walk? What spiritual baggage can I shed to progress faster and trade self-reliance for God-reliance?
