STOP AND THINK – All who would win joy must share it; happiness was born a twin. (Lord Byron, 19th century English poet)
Joy and happiness are emotions to be treasured. But they are not to be held on to jealously. When your joy is shared with others, it not only blesses them but it increases your own pleasure. It’s a win-win situation. You may not wish to share your burdens and sorrows with others (although that can be very helpful to you), but you certainly should share your joys.
We are writing these things so that you may fully share our joy. (1 John 1:4)
