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 64:1-10. Verses 3 and 7 KJV, in the battle for my soul and body this day, what arrow does Satan shoot at me? What arrow does God shoot back at him to save me?
Exodus 22:1-31. How does this chapter refute the idea that might makes right, the rule of the strongest? How well are these ethics presented at my church? In so doing, are we unduly mixing religion and politics?
I Corinthians 4:6-13. Indomitable humility of a Christian apostle. What small step, realistic, practical, can I take to be a little more like this in my relations with others today?
John 6:60-71. Verse 63, honestly, how much of my motivation for following Jesus is spirit and how much is flesh?
