Senior Chaplain Encouragement
NBCS Senior Chaplain, Damien Whitington provides helpful and hopeful encouragement for Finding Joy.
Why aren’t some people joyful? Or what do we do if we’re a little down in the joy department? This is Part One of a series that hopefully helps us to experience more joy, no matter what season we’re in. To do this, we’re going to draw from the wisdom of man at the end of his life. We find this man in a book of the Bible called Ecclesiastes. Yes, this is an awkward title. This man was King and a teacher, and he had everything. Everything.
As we set out to do Term 3 together, let us remember – we all contribute something. We contribute something to our school, our homes, our nation, our world, and God’s kingdom. God values us when he trusts us to contribute. So let’s make sure those contributions are good ones, because we’re all in this together.
Can you imagine going through life never looking down on anyone?
One may wrestle with selfishness and another may battle with tearing people down with their words. One may battle with anger whilst another may wrestle with jealousy. The list goes on. We’ve all got something.
