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 95:1-11. Verse 7, as a sheep under God’s hand, what is asked of me? What is offered me? What’s in store for me today as a result?
Proverbs 14:1-35. Verse 9 sins of the person, verse 34 sins of the people—all made light of. What are some examples in present times? Where am I vulnerable?
Romans 13:8-14. Verse 12 KJV, today and each day, what’s involved for me to put on the armor of light?
Matthew 16:1-4. Verse 3 KJV, signs of the times. How would I explain this, with examples, to a non-believer? What is my church doing about “spiritual climate change”?
