Safeguards to your soul

I was struck at our CU leaders weekend by John Risbridger's observation that we're kept safe by joy (Philippians 3v1).

...rejoice in the Lord! It is no trouble for me to write the same things to you again, and it is a safeguard for you...

Now Pete Dray observes another safeguard - generosity.

People talk about the value of so called 'disciplines' like prayer and Bible study and I don't doubt the vitality of them. But the practice of gospel-joy and gospel-generosity need to be in the mix too.
