March 28, 2018: SOAP #3037: Judges 4-5; Psalm 39, 41; 1Corinthians 13

Scripture:  1Corinthians (NIV) 13:4 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; 5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; 6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;

Observation:    Love has a source of joy.   Love's joy is found in truth.    It finds no joy in evil.

Application:    I need to pay attention to what brings me joy.   It is not just being joyful but discovering the source of my joy.   What makes me smile?

Prayer:      Heavenly Father, may the things that bring you joy, bring me joy.   And may the things that cause you pain, cause me pain.   Holy Spirit, during the next few days, cause me to stop and consider what makes me happy.   Amen
