Joyful Through Hope

“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.” — Romans 12:12‭-‬13
Paul knew that the more we concentrate on helping others, the less we will center our thoughts on ourselves. It should give us extreme joy that as we share hope with others, we are demonstrating our hope in the Lord. Jesus describes in Mathew 25:40 “I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.”
Prayer: Father, thank you for giving us the ability to be joyful in all circumstances through our incredible hope in you. Empower us to share our hope with others today.
