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 1:1-6. Verse 1, we’re known by the company we keep. In my traffic with people, attitudes, and ideas of late, what falls short of God’s standard given here?
Numbers 1:1-54. Moses takes a census, preparing for war. What is God looking for when he counts and classifies his people today? Application to me and my church?
Acts 7:37-50. Verses 48 and 49, no building confines God. How can this make a practical difference in what I must do today?
Mark 4:35-41. What storm or upheaval do I need to see Jesus command and subdue today?
