James 1: 19-27; Psalm 15; Mark 8: 22-26

An examination of conscience.

The Old Testament priest allowed only those who could answer these questions honestly to enter the Temple and worship God. How truthfully can I answer the same questions? Am I living blamelessly, trying to do what is right? Do I speak the truth from my heart? Is there any slander in my gossiping conversation? I may do no evil to my friends. Do I honour those who have due reverence for God? This is not a matter of outward show. My heartfelt commitment is required.
