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 90:1-17. Verse 17 KJV, by what words and actions today can I stir others to think, not "How impressive John is," but "How beautiful God is"?
Jeremiah 10:1-25. Verse 24, what is there in me that I would most desire God to begin correcting today? By what signs will I know he's doing that? How will others notice?
Romans 3:9-20. Related question. Where in this damning portrait do I get a glimpse of my own guilt before God? If nowhere, who do I think I am? Granting it's true, what hope have I?
Matthew 11:20-24. What should I be doing in my daily life to prepare for the day of judgment? Or doesn't it matter much to me? If so, what message am I sending Jesus?
