It’s Sunday and we made it to church, although we were late. Last week I wrote about the morning sermon, I figured I’d make it a regular thing. Kinda use it as an exercise to make sure I pay attention in the service!
This morning, we learned about joy. The biblical example was Paul as he wrote to the newly formed church in Philippi. Paul was facing trial, possibly execution, and yet he wrote about being joyful. His optimism was his strength.
My father-in-law (our pastor) spoke about how we have to find joy in everything we do. In our work. In our families. In our circumstances. In all things. As we find this joy, we will have optimism and confidence. This confidence will bring us success and excellence.
In essence, as Christians strive to be joyful, we must also strive be excellent in everything we do. In our work. In our families. In our circumstances. In all things.
Pretty motivating way to start the week. Here’s to pursuing excellence!
