Bible Saturday 5/18: Become a Fool

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 139:1-24. Verses 14-16, what ailment of body or soul, mine or someone else’s, needs this penetrating sight and healing hand from God today?

Exodus 20:1-26. What can I do to lift the Ten Commandments higher in my daily walk with God and in my church’s witness for God?

I Corinthians 3:18-4:5. Verse 18, in order to honor God today, how must I play the fool in the world’s eyes?

John 6:41-50. Verse 47, how does Jesus’ promise of everlasting life make a difference in the person I am this very day, so that others may notice—not just in who I am after death?
