Searching for Joy
by Rick Boxx
July 20, 2010
In his late 20s, Craig once again won the salesman of the month award. His sales manager told Craig's peers they needed to be like Craig. One salesman proclaimed, "I'm tired of being compared to Craig. He leads a charmed life, I don't."
Craig retreated to his office and wept, because his "charmed life" included working 14 hour days just to do it again each day. He barely knew his wife and he had no joy.
Ecclesiastes 2:24-25 teaches, "A man can do nothing better than to eat and drink and find satisfaction in his work. This too, I see, is from the hand of God, for without him, who can eat or find enjoyment?"
If your life lacks joy it may also lack God. Find Him and you will discover joy.
