Walking around town, you may notice many people lack something in their lives. The people you crossed paths with had scowls on their face. They were rushed. They were missing something.
That something? These people were missing joy.
Joy is an amazing thing.
Joy doesn’t require good things to happen to us. Joy doesn’t require you to be rich. Joy doesn’t require any specific situation in your life.
If we look to the Bible, we can see this is made plain to us. The Bible tells us we should always have joy.
1 Thessalonians 5:16 –
James 1:2 ESV –
Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds…
2 Corinthians 6:10 –
As sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, yet possessing everything.
