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 1:1-6. Verse 1 KJV, be careful the company you keep and the habits you form. Am I in some ways too comfortable with ungodly or scornful persons? Antidote?
Ezekiel 9:1-11. Verse 4, related question, by what figurative mark on the forehead can I recognize persons of a godly heart, grieved by sin, and draw nearer them?
I Corinthians 10:14-22. Verse 21, related again, as a partaker of Jesus' holy communion, what communion with devils must I strictly avoid?
John 6:1-14. Verses 8 and 9, Andrew is notable for bringing people to Jesus. What's involved in being someone who does that? What goal shall I set for myself to do more of it this week?
