Bible Friday 3/29: Bodyguard

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 91:1-16. Verse 11, if God offered me five angels today, each for a pressing need I’m facing, how would I assign them?

Ecclesiastes 4:1-16. Verses 8-12, who do I know that is having to deal with loneliness right now? How can I bring them the love of Christ today?

Galatians 5:1-15. Verses 1 and 13, when have I, or someone I care about, misused the liberty that is ours in Christ? How are we to make it right with Him?

Matthew 21:28-32. Actions speak louder than words. Who are the publicans and harlots of this present day, closer to the kingdom than some smug churchgoers? And what am I smug about??
