Bible Friday 11/23: Riddle

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 107:1-43. Verse 20, what need of healing is there today for me or someone I know? By what word of God will it be accomplished?

Isaiah 28:1-29. Verses 15-18, in what way has the worldly mind in these times made a covenant with death and an agreement with hell? How is God responding? What is my role?

Revelation 2:8-11. Verse 9, am I more concerned with avoiding material poverty or spiritual poverty? Am I more concerned with avoiding the first death or the second death?

Luke 17:20-37. Verse 33, related question, as far as losing my life to save it or vice versa, what practical application does this have for me today? During the coming year? First step?
