Much Is Given


How convicting is it to see people work at a trash dump, not just working, but living there. Most of their possessions they have are peoples' trash; the money they receive a day is the price of a soda we pick up on the way home. What strikes me the most, is that these people have more joy and happiness than any other person. You have put more joy in my heart than they have when their grain and wine abound. (Psalm 4:7). David is speaking to God, thanking Him for joy rather than grain and wine that is in large amounts. A lot of people find joy in giving what God has given them, because God loves a cheerful giver (2 Corinthians 9:7). I leave you with some things to think about and a call to action.

God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him. - John Piper

I'm not going to tell how you can have joy in Christ. I feel we all should find it for ourselves.
