In a world filled with bad news, our joy can be contagious. Have you been around someone who had a ready smile, a quick word of encouragement, a readiness to help you? These ‘angels’ are such a contrast to the naysayers. The Psalmist tells us, “But may the righteous be glad and rejoice before God; may they be happy and joyful” (Psalm 68:3). There are always reasons to rejoice and be happy. Set aside your circumstances and peer more deeply into life and the many blessings you have, and then, spread joy.
