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 36:1-12. Verse 9 KJV, in thy light shall we see light. How is God’s light like any other? What does it enable me to see that I couldn’t see otherwise? Specific application for this day?
Proverbs 11:1-31. Verse 11, upright vs. wicked in the public square. Party labels aside, what attributes distinguish these two camps in America today? What is my church doing about it? My role?
Romans 12:10-21. Verse 10, paraphrasing, “out-honor each other.” Where will I have an opportunity to do this for someone today?
Matthew 15:29-31. Do I believe Jesus’ power to heal anybody of anything is as great now when he sits at God’s right hand, as it was when he sat by the lake? If yes, where is it needed this very day?
