Bible Tuesday 9/18: Rich & Poor

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 61:1-8. Verse 2 KJV, what’s the most overwhelming situation in my life right now? What can I do today to invite God into that situation and turn it over to him?

Job 25:1-6. Whether as theology or secular psychology, how is this dark view of the human condition popularized today? What’s missing in Bildad’s depiction of God and man?

II Corinthians 8:1-15. Verse 9, what are some ways I have become rich through Jesus having become poor in his sacrificial life and death?

Mark 15:33-47. Verses 40 and 41, what’s my understanding of the role and status of women and men in biblical truth? Is my church clear on this? What do Christians have to offer the world in this regard?
