Bible Sunday 8/11: Shhhh!

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 46:1-11. Verse 10, what thoughts and voices must be put to silence today, in order that I experience God hour by hour?

Numbers 35:1-34. God hates the taking of innocent life. What is my church doing about America’s murder epidemic? My role?

II Peter 3:14-18. Wrestling with difficult Bible passages and being misled. What is my safeguard against this?

Mark 12:1-12. Another murder epidemic, not even sparing the Beloved Son. Does this parable, warning the Jews, also warn ourselves as Christians? How am I susceptible?
