Scripture: Proverbs 17:22
A joyful heart helps healing, but a broken spirit dries up the bones.
Thought for the Day: Maya Angelou wrote, “My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.” I’m not suggesting those are all the boxes we want to check in life, but it’s a pretty good starting place. My question for you this day is simply this, “Do you believe the people around you are able to check a majority of those boxes?” If not, how might your way of living the faith help them to find a life that is thriving with some passion, some compassion, some humor and some style? We can never live someone else’s life, even though we might want to once in a while. But there are certain things we can do to provide a vision for life that is enticing and life-giving. What’s one thing you can do today to provide a living witness to a life that others find, not only attractive, but worth emulating.
Prayer: Even though negative things happen around me, Gracious God, I pray for your Spirit to help keep my life an ongoing representation of your abundant joy and merciful kindness. Amen.
