Bible Sunday 10/28: Swords Down

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 103:1-22. Verse 13 KJV, how do I experience God’s pity? Who needs to feel pity from me? In what practical way shall I express that?

Isaiah 2:1-22. Verse 4, a classic vision of peace banishing war. Is our work drawing nearer this, or farther from it? What is my church doing about it? My role?

James 1:21-27. Verse 27 KJV, unspotted from the world. How can I do better at this? Where’s the balance to avoid being unworldly to an extreme? Accountability plan?

Luke 10:17-24. Verse 21 KJV, how can I come to Jesus more like a baby and less like the wise and prudent? What’s a “baby beginner exercise” I could practice all day today?
