"A person does not lose joy; he gives it away. In other words...by your permission, it leaves. Some person in your church or work betrays you, undercuts you, speaks badly about you or hurts your reputation beyond repair. You have a choice confronting you: give your joy away or keep it. Which will it be? If without your permission no person can take your joy, what in the world are you doing letting it go?"
