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 55:1-23. Verses 12-14, when have I done—or had done to me—Judas-like betrayal of trust and friendship? What did it teach me about sin and grace?
Zechariah 11:1-17. Verses 12-13, how am I sometimes tempted to put a dollar value on that which is priceless in God’s sight?
Luke 20:9-19. Verse 14, what does the worldly mind seek to gain by silencing Jesus and all his witnesses? What can I and my church do to counter that?
Matthew 26:1-16. Verse 13, when I and my church proclaim the gospel, do we give full weight to Jesus’ death and burial for our salvation?
