Welcome to our summer joy series!  The next 4 episodes are designed to help bring more joy into your life.  This is our third episode in the series and are talking about finding joy by being in community.

Do you know one way to get joy?  Give joy!  Yep, making an effort to make other’s day, in turn, makes yours.  We are built for community and when we serve others, there is a part of us that comes alive!

But, like a lot of good things in this world, we can forget just how easy this is.  We make it harder than it has to be, our own insecurities can get in the way, and well, sometimes we are just so busy that we forget to think about it.

Well, guess what?  Together, we are going to remind each other of just how powerful and simple this can be.  

“Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered.” Proverbs 11:25

So how can we make this simple and remember to do it?  That is what we are going to talk about in this episode and I am so excited about the action items from this week’s action items.  You can literally do a few of them while you are still listening to this podcast!

  • Watch your face
  • Reach out and text someone
  • Serve strangers like they were Jesus

“And the King will say, ‘I tell you the truth when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!’   Matthew 25:40

  • Greet others with excitement, love, and like they are the most important person
  • Use your gifts in the small humble ways
  • Pray for the people you see.  Give me your eyes by Brandon Heath.  Exercise your empathy and ask God how you can serve those around you.
