Ripped Off, Blessed Even More

Have you ever been ripped off? I think all of us have.

In the world, what comes around goes around. If you do evil things, evil will come back to you. Better yet, if you do good, good will come back to you. This doesn’t matter if you have repented and know Jesus or not.

However, as a believer, we have something better. If someone steals from you, you have to do two things.
1) Make the thief known (whether it be spiritually or sometimes to their face).
2) Never lose your joy, even if you get ripped off.

You’ve got to know that the thief has to repay you seven fold. Proverbs 6:30-31 makes that clear.

As a believer, we have to really work to keep our joy. Below are eight reasons why you must keep your joy.
