Bible Sunday 1/20: Meekness

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 149:1-9. Verse 4 KJV, how can I be more meek today? Where is the beauty in that?

Genesis 20:1-18. Abraham lies about Sarah. When have I told a white—or black—lie? How did God show his displeasure?

I John 5:14-21. Verse 21, what am I most likely to make an idol of? Action point?

Matthew 6:16-24. Verse 24, same question put differently, what false master am I most likely to serve?
