<139> Thesis: The twin principles of joy are "giving glory to God" and "seeking the true eternal interests of others". Introduction: In our study of the sudden appearance of the army of heaven, we made the claim that their "outburst" contains the "capstone" of "joy" for men. We have been considering the foundations of joy as this paragraph unveils them under the thesis that the angel's message, and the Savior's birth, are all about "great joy". Since "joy" is the missing ingredient too much of the time, it will pay us to return to the statement that the army of heaven made.
