Bible Monday 3/18: One Gone Astray

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 58:1-11. Verses 4, 6, 8, what threats that are to me as fearsome as a cobra or a lion, are in God’s sight as trivial and harmless as a snail? Prayer point for today?

Proverbs 24:1-34. Verse 29, inverse of the Golden Rule. Where do I face, at present, a choice between these two opposite approaches? Why does it matter to God?

Titus 3:1-15. Verse 10 KJV, are heretics and heresies of concern to my church or not? Why does it matter to God?

Matthew 18:10-14. In Jesus’ math, 1>99. When have I experienced or witnessed this saving activity of the Son and the Father? How can I live into this more fully?
