Bible Wednesday 3/28: Anointed

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 55:1-23. Verses 3 and 16 KJV.  By what signs can I recognize the voice of the enemy, of Satan? By what signs can I recognize God's voice? Where am I most vulnerable today?

Lamentations 2:1-22. Verse 14, what are some of the wrong answers given for our country's troubles by misguided leaders, spiritual and secular? How does Holy Week point to the right answer?

Luke 20:9-19. Verse 18, it seems God's cornerstone, Jesus Christ, either fatally falls on me or I fall on him and am broken. Which is it so far? Changes I need to make?

Matthew 26:1-16. Verse 11, if Jesus says poverty and misery are a constant in the world, we can respond with indifference or with compassion. Which is it for me and my church?
