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 27:!-14. Verse 4, what would it mean for me to dwell in God's house all day today, and still go busily about whatever is expected of me?
Ezekiel 35:1-15. Verse 6, when have I experienced that a self-willed and godless way of life is its own punishment? What did I learn that can bless someone else right now?
Ephesians 1:1-14. Verse 10, what is disordered, discordant, divided, or dysfunctional, in my little world or the wider world, that I can pray God to gather and harmonize through Christ today?
John 8:1-12. Verse 7, when have I cast a stone, having no right? Verse 11, when have I accepted forgiveness, then kept offending? What ongoing sins am I hiding from myself?
