Joel Osteen Daily Devotional October 7 2022
THEME: Join the Party
SCRIPTURE: -Luke 15:31–32, NIV “My son,’ the father said,’ you are always with me, and everything I have is yours. But we had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.”
That bitterness, however, didn’t stop the party; it just kept him out of the party. Sometimes we’re holding on to unforgiveness, anger, and resentment, thinking that it’s hurting the other person when it’s only hurting us. Are you letting bitterness or a disappointment keep you from enjoying today? Why don’t you let it go and come into the party? Life is happening. There’s a celebration going on. Today is a gift. Don’t let a bad childhood keep you out of the party. Don’t let a divorce or a breakup cause you to be sour and sit on the sidelines of life. Come into the party.
