Fruits of the Spirit
Joy - Share your Blessings
One way God brings joy to you is to give you blessings. True joy comes from putting God first in your life, others second and yourself third. Listening to others share what God has done for them is another way God will bring you joy. Think of some of your blessings. Praise God for His goodness and ask Him how you can share your blessings with others?
If we are unhappy or sad, we do not have to remain that way. God gave us His Joy in the fruits of the Spirit. When we think about good things and see all the good that God has done, it will bring great joy into our hearts. God tells us to think about good things remembering all that He has done for us. We are to give Him praise, glory and thanks for the works of His hands. Then we need to share our blessings with others!
Gramma Cherbear picks beautiful flowers she will put in a vase on the table in her Den. Cami Cub is having fun rolling around in the field of clover. It is cool and soft like a pillow. Joshua Jackrabbit is fishing in the Kid Cave Pond. Fishing helps him to relax and Joshua really loves to relax! Emmi Squirrel is playing with the butterflies and smelling the flowers. Spring is her favorite time of the year. She does not feel shy around the butterflies. Liam Leapfrog loves to swim. Jumping into the clean water of the pond makes him very happy. Everyone is having great joy. They love to share their blessings with each other.
God gives us our blessings. He wants us to share with others how happy we are for our blessings. When we remember the good things that God has done, it will remind us to be thankful. There is great joy in our praise for Him. If we share our gift of joy with others they will learn to know goodness of God.
