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 132:1-18. Verses 9, 16, 18 KJV, clothed with righteousness or with shame. As I “get dressed” for today, what will be my moral and spiritual garments?
Proverbs 6:1-35. Verses 16-19, seven abominations to God. How do entertainment and popular culture spread all of these? What is my church doing about it? My role?
Romans 10:14-21. Gospel preachers in much demand. What is my church doing about it? My role?
Matthew 14:13-21. Right now where do I need to see a few loaves and fishes multiplied to meet a great need? How shall I invite Jesus into the situation? What might his solution look like?
