Yet what is a working definition of joy? It's not so easy to come by. Nevertheless, I liked the attempt to define the word made in our Explore the Bible Leader's Guide from this past Sunday. There, joy was defined this way:
"...joy is the sense of delight, completeness, and well-being that comes from knowing and being blessed by God."
I believe that's a pretty good definition. Maybe not perfect, but it's getting there. As I said, joy is easier to understand once it's been experienced. Limiting it to words is tricky.
What do you think? Is this a good working definition? Leave your thoughts in the comments!
