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 44:1-26. Verse 21, what secrets about me, good or bad, does God know and no one else does? What difference does this make, or should it make, as I go through this day?
Isaiah 3:1-26. Verse 15 KJV, what institutions, interests, or influences in these times “grind the faces of the poor”? What is my church doing about it? My role?
James 2:1-13. More about the poor. Verse 7, how do the rich and powerful tend to blaspheme against God and Christ? How does this ensnare me?
Luke 10:25-37. And still more. If the Good Samaritan is not only a kind soul but a boundary-crosser, who has ministered to me in this way? To whom can I do so today?
