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 119:121-144. Verse 136, in these troubled times, what wickedness or injustice grieves me the most? What am I or my church doing about it?
Ecclesiastes 9:1-18. Verses 14 and 15, the difference one person can make. Whom do I admire that has done this? What’s the practical application in my own life right now?
Philippians 1:12-26. Verses 20 and 21, Paul indifferent to death, all in. Contrast with Ecclesiastes 9:4, stay alive at any cost. In these Lenten days, fixed on Christ, how can I be more like that?
Matthew 22:41-46. Jesus teaches of his divinity out of Psalm 110. How can I more actively and obey him as Lord of my life today?
