Oliver Wendell Holmes Speaks About a Christian Expressing Joy
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., was a member of the U.S. Supreme Court for 30 years. At one point in his life, Justice Holmes explained his choice of a career by saying: “I might have entered the ministry if certain clergymen I knew had not looked and acted so much like undertakers.” So where is the joy? Where is the “always” rejoicing in the Lord? Where is the “always” giving praise with joy in our hearts for the great things He has done? (Today In The Word, June, 1988, p. 13).
