This week’s daily readings are listed below, along with some questions to guide your reading.
What three themes are introduced here? What is the righteous life that God desires? What more is to be done than just hearing the Word?
Why would favoritism be a problem in this setting? How do Abraham and Rahab prove James’ point? What kind of faith is being criticized?
Why is stricter judgment placed upon teachers? How is it possible for human beings to both curse others and praise God?
How is James’ ten-fold prescription an effective antidote? How does this cure fit the other themes in James? What are some outward signs of this inner submission to God?
What lessons are provided by the farmer? The returning Judge? By the prophets? By Job?
“The Journey” is Living Springs’ commitment to read at least a chapter of the Bible every day. We follow the same reading schedule so that we can encourage each other along the way. And our pastors post occasional blogs about the readings to instruct and inspire us.
