March 11 – Blessed with Complete Joy

Would you like to live in complete joy?  The people of Israel were told to give back to God.  This giving was a celebration and in proportion to what He had provided and what He would continue to provide: blessings including success with work and abundant joy.  Why would we not want to return blessing for blessing and to do so with a happy heart? 
Then celebrate the Festival of Weeks to the LORD your God by giving a freewill offering in proportion to the blessings the LORD your God has given you.  Remember, life is not all about work and making a profit.  Take time out from working to celebrate the Lord.  For seven days celebrate the festival to the LORD your God at the place the LORD will choose. For the LORD your God will bless you in all your harvest and in all the work of your hands, and your joy will be complete.  What price would you pay for complete joy?  God has provided salvation, material blessings, His Word as a handbook for living a purposeful life, and so much more.  Thank You God!
