Living your Life of JOY

In addition to walking in love with God and having good relationships with people, living your life of JOY will also require Physical Work, Rest, Giving, and Praise.

Most of your Joy will come from the spiritual (praise, obedience, giving) and social (giving, relationships); but some of it is physical (physical work, rest).

If you don’t do physical work, then it may be a good idea to exercise or play a sport.

Is sports idolatry? No, sports is only idolatry if you mix it with alcoholism, lust, or covetousness (greed for money, gambling).

YAH doesn’t take pleasure in the legs of a man (Psalms 147:10), so we should not overemphasize the strength in sports.

However, Scripture does associate sports with joy (Psalms 19:5), and discipline (1 Corinthians 9:24-27).

So if you have problems with Joy, or Discipline… these are things you may be able to get help with through a sport.

After you put your body through your physical work, or your sport… then Rest, Give, and Praise the Most High! The sleep of a laboring man is sweet (Eccl. 5:12).
