Daily Thought: Indispensable Joy

"Hence there is nothing so attractive as joy, no preaching so persuasive as the sight of hearts made glad.  There is no proof of the reality of God's love and the blessing He bestows as when the joy of God overcomes all the trials of life.  And for the Christian's own welfare, joy is indispensable.  The joy of the Lord is his strength; confidence, courage, and patience find their inspiration in joy.  With a heart full of joy, no work can weary and no burden can depress." ~ Andrew Murray, The Best of Andrew Murray, p. 132
