A Joyful Heart
It's been said that "the best predictor of future behavior is past behavior". Of course, people can change and we love them no matter what, but if you're wondering if you can trust someone as a spouse, employee, caregiver, financial adviser or other important partner, you're going to want to evaluate their record. It's wise not to yoke yourself with them until the changes they claim are proven. As you consider this, consider God our Creator, "who does not change like shifting shadows" (James 1:17). If He does not change, then certainly the best way to evaluate His trustworthiness for the future is to honestly look at what He's done in the past. This week at Friendship, we'll talk about how to have and demonstrate "A Joyful Heart" even during difficult times. When you aren't sure of the road ahead, be intentional about looking back at what God has done. When you see His favor in your life, you'll have "joy because of grace". We'll discuss this and much more, so join us for this much-needed message from the Lord!
