Bible Saturday 6/16: To be Great

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 76:1-12. Verse 11, what vow have I made to God and kept, or what vow to God am I under right now? What's at stake in keeping it or not? Can I do this?

I Samuel 28:1-25. How does the occult present itself to ensnare me or those close to me? What is God's antidote?

Acts 10:17-33. When have I seen God arrange a divine appointment, as he did between Cornelius and Peter? Application to present needs?

Matthew 23:1-12. Where am I prone to the self-importance Jesus condemns here? What are some practical ways to humble myself and be a servant, as he exemplified?
