J. O. Y.

in Christian Living/Situational Joy

Here's David Chadwick with today's Bible Minute.

If you want to have joy in your life, always remember this acronym: J-O-Y. The J is Jesus. Always make sure you put Jesus first in your life. Seek first His kingdom. The O is others. Make sure you serve others second in your life after you make Jesus your highest priority. Then the Y is you. You should take care of yourself.

You need to give yourself all kinds of many blessings and that's okay. Just make sure you have the proper priorities in order.

Again, the J is Jesus, the O is others, the Y then is you. And when you practice this rightly, Jesus first, others second, then yourself, you'll have joy in abundance, joy inexpressible like God intends you to have every single day you live.
