Bible Friday 7/12: Ananias's Moment

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 22:1-31. Verse 28 KJV, what political situation in this country or around the world shall I pray God to direct and correct today?

Numbers 5:1-31. Verse 29, law of jealousies. When have I seen a couple estranged by sin or reunited by grace? How did God show up? Present application to persons I know about?

Acts 9:1-22. Verses 10-12, who may be in dire need of a Christly gesture from me right now, such as Saul needed from Ananias? First step?

Mark 6:30-44. In the immediate community where I live, who could be called sheep without a shepherd? What can my church do for them? My role?
