JOYfilled Life - "O" is for Others

I can't believe I never finished this devotional on here!!!! Shows you how my life has been!!!!  In case you need a refresher course, JOY stands for Jesus, Others and You.  If you put this in your life in this order, you will have joy in your life.  I ended with J, so we are going to look at "O" now.

While we find joy in Jesus, becoming closer to Him, we will enrich our joy by becoming more like Jesus serving others.

". . . . then make my joy complete by being like minded,
having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose.
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit,
but in humility consider others better than yourselves.
Each of you should look not only to your own interests,
but also to the interest of others."
- Philippians 2:2-4 NIV

Our joy is COMPLETE when we do what Paul and Jesus have instructed us - serving others, putting them first!  When you do for others, you will feel better and will

" . . . shine like stars in the universe . . ."
- Philippians 2:15b NIV
