Bible Thursday 2/15: Bruised Reed

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 37:1-40. Verse 23, what course of action is unclear to me right now, where I need God to guide my steps?

Jeremiah 15:1-21. Verse 16, what part of God's word in Scripture do I find most delicious, most nourishing? What part is more an acquired taste for me, harder to swallow?

Romans 5:1-11. Verse 10, when have I behaved as an enemy of the Father or the Son? How and why did I change?

Matthew 12:15-21. Verses 19-20, how does Isaiah's description fit the public ministry of Jesus better than Christians in the public square today? What's here that convicts me?
