Bible Monday 6/3: The Good Shepherd

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 89:1-52. Verse 15 KJV, since God is seldom or never audible to the human ear, what is the joyful sound he wants me to hear? What exactly should I be listening for today?

Exodus 36:1-38. In my church’s ministry to exalt God, how important are beautiful and precious things of human making? Were such things of less importance to Jesus and Paul than to Moses and Solomon?

I Corinthians 10:23-11:1. Verse 33 echoes chapter 9, verse 22. How can I specifically apply this teaching to become a more winsome witness for Christ with both believers and non-believers?

John 10:1-21. If I am to conduct myself toward Jesus as a sheep toward its shepherd, in what regard do I do this fairly well? In what regard, not very well? Action point for today?
