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 90:1-17. Verses 4, 10, 12, am I clear that days, years, aging, and time itself are all under God’s control, made by him and deemed “very good”? Where are my blind spots on this?
Ecclesiastes 5:1-20. Verses 11-15, do I own my possessions or do they own me? Do I run my schedule or does it run me? Does all of this tend to crowd out God in my life?
Galatians 5:16-26. Verse 22, which particular fruit of the Spirit shall I take as my keynote for today? Verse 24, specifically how, with Christ’s help, can I crucify the flesh today?
Matthew 22:1-14. Reviewing the past week or two, when have I put other priorities ahead of my focus on Jesus the Bridegroom and the church his bride?
