Bible Sunday 12/16: His Pity

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, what is there in me that God pities? What’s the result? What’s expected of me in return?

Isaiah 51:1-23. Verse 13, when have I forgotten God recently? How can I do better today?

Revelation 16:12-21. Verse 15, for me to be watchful as Jesus commands here, what’s involved from moment to moment today?

Luke 23:13-25. Verse 18, the worldly mind forever prefers Barabbas to Jesus. What examples can we see around us? How does this subtly get at me?
