Bible Sunday 8/12: Abounding Love

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 14 KJV, what words of my mouth in the past 24 hours were unacceptable to God? How can I do better in the next 24 hours?

I Kings 8:1-29. Verses 4-6, what is the greatest display of God's power my family has ever experienced? Whom can I bless by telling them of it?

Philippians 1:1-11. Verse 6, what is half finished in my life or that of a loved one, for which I can claim God's promise of continuation and completion today?

Mark 10:1-12. What are the direct and indirect consequences, ripple effects, of Jesus' followers today so widely disregarding his teaching about the permanence of marriage?
