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 36:1-12. Verses 6-9 KJV, how can this imagery of God's goodness become concrete for me today? How can I experience God as if he were a mountain, an ocean, a wing, a house, a river, a fountain, a light?
Ezekiel 17:1-24. Verse 24, no exceptions to God's sovereignty. What happened yesterday, personal or public, large or small, good or bad, to which I reacted without asking, "Where is God in this?"
I Corinthians 4:14 - 5:6. Verses 15 and 16, what person do I consider a father or mother in Christ, and whose lead I should therefore willingly follow?
John 4:1-14. As a Jewish man doubly barred from engaging a Samaritan woman, Jesus still does so. What equally unlikely contact I can make today? What can I learn from his approach to her?
