Yesterday at MCC we spent some time reflecting on joy.
Joy is the opposite of fear.
Fear holds back and worries about what others think.
Fear spends all of its time worrying about the unknowns, the “what ifs.”
Joy is about celebrating, about something so good and true that you can’t help but let go.
Joy is about “what is.”
Christmas is about God being with us. What is, is pretty amazing.
The angels told the shepherds to “…not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.”
Joy frees us from fear!
So, what do you have to be joyful about today?
