Bible Monday 4/29: Beauty Within

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 1:1-6. Verse 3, what would God’s specific fulfillment of these promises look like in my life today?

Exodus 1:1-22. Verse 8, am I in any way too reliant on some “indispensable” person or connection and not reliant enough on God?

I Peter 3:1-12. Verse 4, beautifying the hidden person of the heart. What goal shall I set myself in this regard today, with God’s help?

John 1:35-51. Verse 42, related question, what latent quality in me, contrary to what others see, shall I ask Jesus to bring out more and more?
