Bible Saturday 1/19: Escaping Sodom

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 20:1-9. Verse 6 KJV, to think of God’s hand is to picture his precise purposeful action. Where do I need this today?

Genesis 19:1-38. Verses 17 and 26, danger of looking back. What’s the application for me today?

I John 5:1-13. Verses 1 and 4, what does being born again mean to me? If someone had watched me closely for the past week, would they know?

Matthew 6:1-15. How can I dwell closer to the Lord’s Prayer today? Which of Jesus’ warnings about how not to pray, do I particularly need to heed?
