E. Stanley Jones, an American missionary to India once said, “There are two groups of people in this world. There is a very big group of people in this world who are miserable. They live for themselves. There’s another group who have given their lives away to others. Their lives are filled with a wild joy.”
This week, find a way to live for another. Notice the people around you. Invite them into your life. Speak words of love and grace to them. In doing so, we can find joy in serving The One who makes us whole.
I invite you to read the Bible with me – This week’s reading:
Monday – John 16
Tuesday – John 17
Wednesday – John 18
Thursday – John 19
Friday – John 20
