When praying, remember the JOY principle: Jesus first, Others second, Yourself last.
Jesus replied, ‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ …‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’
Matthew 22:37-40 (NLT)
Make no mistake – we live in a society that advocates for philosophies like, “take care of yourself first” and “do whatever it takes, just make sure you win.” And we wonder why we are so lonely.
True joy comes from putting God first and serving others. So, come Lord, Holy Spirit.
