Bible Thursday 1/31: Vows

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 59:1-17. Verse 16, why is it important to sing to God as well as speak to him? How can my church do this better? What more can I do with it in my own faith life?

Genesis 31:1-55. Verse 13, when have I made a vow to God and kept it?

Hebrews 5:5-14. Verse 12, what is the balance of milk vs. meat in my spiritual diet these days? Is it changing?

Matthew 9:14-17. Verse 15,what would it look like if I and the Christians I’m closest to, took more seriously the idea of Jesus as the bridegroom and us as his bride?
