Bible Friday 7/5: Proclaim Liberty

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 141:1-10. Verse 5, what friend helps keep me morally and spiritually accountable? What friend looks to me for the same tough love? Action point today?

Leviticus 25:1-55. Verse 10 KJV, inscribed on the Liberty Bell. What is my church doing to foster a godly understanding of true freedom, against the libertine counterfeit?

Acts 6:1-15. Verse 3 KJV, deacons appointed to assist the apostles. How can my church keep closer to the Holy Spirit in all its business and personnel? My role?

Mark 4:21-25. In what specific ways from day to day is my candle of faith either kept obscure or held high?
