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 42:1-11. Verse 2 KJV, what does it mean to have a thirst in the soul? Toward what false objects has my thirst turned? What is it about God that satisfies when those do not?
Isaiah 1:1-31. Verses 5-7, what is the sickness afflicting our country, our culture, our civilization, right now? What is my church doing about it? What’s my role?
James 1:12-20. Verse 20, what I thought was justified or righteous anger, isn’t that. How do I need to change to meet this standard?
Luke 10:1-16. To what part of Christ’s harvest am I realistically called right now? What work can I realistically do there, more than I’m doing now?
