Bible Friday 6/15: Inclusion

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 73:1-28. Verse 22 KJV, when have I felt this foolish before God, as far beneath him as the beasts are below humans? What did I learn? Present application?

I Samuel 27:1-12. David discouraged, duplicitous, ruthless. When have I placed too much hope in someone, as though to be a godly person were to be always perfect?

Acts 10:1-16. God prepares the apostle and the centurion to learn the inclusiveness of grace. Toward whom do I need to learn and apply that same lesson? First step?

Matthew 22:34-46. Jesus teaches of the Father from Deuteronomy 6 and of the Son from Psalm 110. How can I be more Trinitarian in my daily thought and actions?
