Luke 19: 1-10
The world tells us that the root of joy is in the ‘stuff’ of life. But the Bible tells us that the root of joy is found in a relationship with Jesus. When we search for joy in all the things of life we come up empty and frustrated. In the ‘Practice of Godliness’ we discover the true meaning of joy.
