Bible Thursday 8/16: Overloaded?

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 105:1-45. Verse 26, what are some things I can learn from Moses? Things I can learn from Aaron? Missteps of theirs I should avoid? Application for this very day?

II Kings 12:1-21. Solomon's temple repaired: planning, funding, fulfillment. What is the most notable building project to the glory of God that I've ever witnessed? What did I learn?

Philippians 2:1-11. What conflict or clash I'm personally close to, should set us praying for the "is there any" of verse 1 and then for the harmonizing influence of verses 2-4?

Mark 10:23-31. Verse 25, in what specific ways do my material assets, in all their forms, get in the way of my experiencing the kingdom of God?
