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 46:1-11. Verse 4, there being no such waterway in Jerusalem, what is this river and how can I partake of it? Verse 5, in what way do I need to stay unmoved today? What help do I need from God?
Ecclesiastes 6:1-11. Verse 4, his name covered in darkness. What do I want to be remembered for, among the people of God? Is that on track, or do I need a course correction?
Galatians 6:1-10. Verses 2, 5, 9, what wearies me in the Christian life? Bearing my burden? Bearing the other person’s burden? Where does the law of Christ come in?
Matthew 22:15-22. Am I rendering rightly to God and to politics, or do I need a course correction? How can my church do better at this? How can Christians in general?
