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 102:1-28. Verses 11 & 12, 26 & 27, what unsettling changes have come upon me and my world with the passing years? How does God's unchanging goodness address those?
Lamentations 3:1-66. Verses 24-26, what is the longest and hardest time of waiting that God is putting me through right now? What's my source of hope and patience?
John 13:1-38. Verse 14, what would washing others' feet look like in practical ways for me right now, starting next week after Easter? If I were extra bold, what would it look like?
Matthew 26:17-56. Verse 39, as best I can tell, self-knowledge being imperfect, on what specific point do I sense my own will standing opposed to God's will?
