What a cool benediction for a community of believers. I want to write this verse on the walls of our new men’s dorm.
Apply: As I live today, I want to be defined by the first instruction – rejoice. Specifically, as my wife and daughter wake this morning, I want to great them with joy.
Which one of these instructions do you need to apply to your life today?
