May 8, 2017: SOAP #2713: 2Samuel 15, 16; Psalm 32; Matthew 25

Scripture:  Psalm (NIV) 32:11 Rejoice in the LORD and be glad, you righteous; sing, all you who are upright in heart.

Observation:    Three 'happy' words help describe people whose sins are forgiven and whose heart is right with God:   rejoice, glad, and sing.   Joy should be a major characteristic of those whose sins are have the Holy Spirit living within.   It should be obvious to others.  

Application:      It is a joy to have happy children around the home.   Their laughter as they play brings joy to the adults.   My Heavenly Father likes me to be joyful.   With all He has done for me, there should be no reason not to be joyful.   May angels look forward to being assigned to me for the day.    

Prayer:     Holy Spirit, what a joy it is for me to have you accompany me twenty-four hours every day!  I pray that I bring you joy also. Amen
