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 30:1-12. Verse 11, for me to praise God all day today, what’s the spiritual counterpart of grateful dancing and joyous clothing?
Isaiah 50:1-11. Verse 4, God’s gift to his chosen, speaking well, listening well. What’s my particular need here? With this gift, whom can I bless?
Revelation 16:1-11. If this comes today, am I ready? Does the call to repent apply only to others, or equally to me?
Luke 23:6-12. Herod’s self-serving curiosity about Jesus. How is this attitude expressed in our times? What’s the result? What’s God’s remedy?
