For the days ahead, consider An Abundant Life:
Jesus promised an abundant life, but also told us there is an enemy plotting our downfall:
“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.” (John 10:10)
Our enemy, the “thief,” is also a liar, always twisting the truth. So while Jesus promised an abundant life, Satan spins it so we think that life is found in an abundance of activity and commitments.
And don't forget to “Celebrate God’s Goodness to Others”
You’ll enjoy life a whole lot more if you will learn to be happy over the successes of other people. If you’re only happy when things go well for you, you’re going to be miserable most of your life, because things won’t always go well for you or anybody else. But if you learn to be happy at other people’s successes and enjoy other people’s celebrations, you can be happy all the time. The people you have the hardest time seeing success in is your family and friends.
