Jesus says, “I have spoken these things to you that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made complete.” (John 15:11)
Joy, joy is a good thing, one of the fruits of the spirit, I can’t exactly remember what fruit represents it, but let’s just say it’s a banana I think, because I remember I think it was that. Anyways, yeah, we all feel joy, we feel it when, you know. When you bring someone joy, you can also feel joy yourself, so it’s the best of both worlds.
You can get joy from many things, it’s hard to list them. Say, for example, you might be satisfied with something, be looking forward to something, or having some fun in the present. It could be joy for games, food, finding something rare and lucky, like a 4-leaf clover or a shooting star (or a “Little Luigi” as I call it despite how little sense that makes). It’s hard to explain it but yeah, this is the end of the story I think! Ω
Reflect: What brings you joy? How do you share joy with others?
What is this? Lent is the 40 days, excluding Sundays, before Easter. Traditionally it is a time of reflection and pilgrimage. To help you on this journey, Sanctuary has put together 40 stories from people both within and beyond the congregation, with associated questions for reflection and prayer. A reading will be uploaded every day of Lent. This year’s theme is Fruit of the Spirit. Why? Read this. #Lent2022. Real People, Real Stories: 40 Readings for Lent © Sanctuary, 2022.
