Bible Tuesday 7/9: Lynch Mob

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 5:1-12. Verse 8, what enemies cause me to need God’s protection and guidance today?

Numbers 2:1-34. Twelve tribes, order of camping and marching. At this point in my life right now, what’s my assigned post of duty in God’s battle plan? Is he pleased with how I’m doing??

Acts 7:51-8:3. Verses 58 and 1, was Saul, scourge of the Christians, inflamed by the Stephen episode or troubled by it? When have I sided with the mob and regretted it?

Mark 5:1-20. Verse 7 KJV, related question, in my experience or that of someone I know, has the name of Jesus ever been more of a torment than a joy? Present application?
