Be Joyful

Scripture reading

Be joyful always; pray continuously; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

–1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Thought of the Day

Are you happy today? How about joyful? To be honest with you, there is not much difference in those two words to me. I looked in my NIV concordance and happy shows up more times than joyful. I like both words. I like this quote too.

If happiness could be bought, we’d be unhappy with the price.

I am afraid that this is true. Sometimes we let things get to us and it is hard for us to be happy or joyful. Maybe if we remember the words in our scripture today will be easier for us. So be joyful and happy always. Pray and give thanks continually.


Lord, Thank you for Your love. Amen.
