Bible Monday 4/30: Pharisees

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 58:1-11. Verse 5 KJV, what are some charms I must beware of in worldliness, sin, and evil subtly alluring me? What is God's antidote?

Ezekiel 30:1-26. As God anciently used prophets like Ezekiel to warn the faithful of his intentions, who or what does he use now? How can I be better attuned to that?

I Corinthians 14:1-11. Related question, verse 3, how can I recognize prophetic words in my daily life as a Christian? How can I put myself in position to be such a speaker for God?

John 8:13-20. Who are the Pharisees of our time, obstructing Jesus at every turn? Are some of them in my church? Are some of their attitudes in me? What is God's remedy?
