How can you look at a face like this and not feel a fountain of joy well up inside?
This little guy is my grandson Truman, a photo taken a few years ago. He is such a joy!
The fact that I have a relationship with him is a source of great joy. When I think about happiness, I think it relates to ‘what’s happening’. Joy on the other hand comes from relationship, with God and other people.
Consider this verse: “These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full. This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.” John 15:11,12
Joy is connected to loving one another!
