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 72:1-20. Verses 2, 4, 12, 13, how can my church do more for the poor, not instead of the Gospel but because of the Gospel? My role?
Leviticus 2:1-16. Such offerings no longer being required of the Christian, what does God ask of me instead, reflecting the same exactness, obedience, and solemnity?
I Corinthians 13:1-14:5. Verses 4-6, which of these expressions of Christian love or charity is a weak link for me? Toward whom do I need to do better, and specifically how? Action point for today?
John 17:1-19. Verse 3, if life eternal is qualitative right now, not just quantitative in the future, how does “knowing” God and Jesus, Father and Son, make my life better this very day?
