Bible Tuesday 7/2: Set Free

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 122:1-9. Verse 1, what’s my favorite thing about going to church? My least favorite? At my church, who blesses me? Whom do I bless? Action point?

Leviticus 22:1-33. Even if these exact rules no longer apply, how do the categories God warns about, “unclean” and “profane,” guide us today toward holy living and holy worship?

Acts 5:12-21. Who that is materially or spiritually imprisoned would I ask God’s angel to set free today?

Mark 4:1-9. Verse 9, what would a 100-1 yield of fruit from seed look like in some Kingdom endeavor that I support? What can I do today to position us for that?
