Bible Monday 6/11: Barnabas

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 19:1-14. Verse 10, in God's character and his dealings with me, what's more precious than any wealth? What's sweeter than any food? How can I thank him for these today?

I Samuel 23:1-29. David a hunted fugitive, though named as the next king. When has it seemed God stood back and made me do something the hard way? What did I learn?

Acts 9:26-31 * Acts 11:19-26 * Acts 15:36-40. Barnabas used by God, but in Paul's shadow. Who do I know like this in ministry, ever the loyal subordinate? How can I encourage them?

Matthew 21:33-46. Verse 44, how have I been broken in dealing with Christ the cornerstone? Was it permanent? How am I different now?
