Bible Monday 10/15: Cares, Riches, Pleasures

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 1:1-6. Verse 1 KJV, toward what or whom am I scornful? Why does this displease God? Action point?

Nehemiah 2:1-20. What “wall repair” commitment is God spiritually asking of me right now?\

Galatians 2:11-21. Verse 20, what part of me has been crucified with Christ? What part of me still needs to be? First step?

Luke 8:11-18. Verse 14, in what specific form do these choking influences operate on me? Verse 16, is my light as a Christian more up on a candlestick or under a bed?
