Bible Thursday 8/1: Climate Fears?

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 74:1-23. Verses 15-17, amidst the world’s worries about climate and weather, how can I more faithfully trust all this to God?

Numbers 25:1-18. Verses 1-3, some say these days the culture shapes the church instead of vice versa. How is my church doing in this regard? My role?

Acts 16:1-15. Verse 14, what qualities in Lydia made her valuable to Paul’s ministry? Whom do I know that resembles her?

Mark 13:14-23. Verse 22, what are some examples these days of false Christs and false prophets? What am I doing about it?
