This week we talked about the movie “A Christmas Carol.” We talked about how Mr. Scrooge was always full of himself and never opened his eyes to the care of others. All he wanted was money and he didn’t want to deal with his own insecurities and sins. We as humans can be like that if we do not have Jesus Christ living in us. When we decide to let Him change our hearts, then we begin to know true joy that lasts eternally. And when His love begins to shape us into new beings, then we begin to show that love to others. We as Christians should live by the J.O.Y. principle: Jesus first, then Others, and Yourself last. Don’t be a scrooge! Know Jesus and then you will Know joy!
