Birthday Lesson

The vision of Wyandotte Family Church is faith, family, fun!!

This morning as we celebrate my daughters birthday I am introspective.Why is it the older we get, the harder it is to live with true joy? Children start off so full of joy and excited about life. As we get older we still want joy but often try things that only bring temporary happiness but not lasting joy!

Galatians 5:22 says one fruit of the Spirit is joy.

When we find ourselves living without joy let's pause and examine the direction & speed of our lives. Maybe we need to slow down and spend some time in Gods presence and allow HIS joy to fill our lives. Maybe we need to hang with some little ones and be reminded how to let loose and have fun!

Remember, activity doesn't always equal productivity. Busyness doesn't always equal fruitfulness. The proof is in our hearts and lives.

What is one fun thing you can do with your family or with others today? When you are done take time to read Galatians 5:22 and ask God to help you be filled with His Spirit and fruit so that you don't chase counterfeits.
