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 106:1-48. Verse 8 KJV, “nevertheless.” When has God met me far more than halfway, given me second chances, kept faith with me even when I broke faith with him?
Proverbs 3:1-35. Verse 27, what gesture of kindness, what person in need, does this place on my heart today?
Romans 9:14-26. Verse 21, if I am in God’s hand as clay in the potter’s hand, what should be my attitude toward this day, the year ahead, and my whole future?
Matthew 13:44-52. What price is Jesus specifically asking of me to “buy” this treasure field or supreme pearl, his kingdom? Is this something I just pay once—sold—or keep paying and paying?
