Help Yourself To Happiness

Everybody, everywhere
seeks happiness, it’s true,
But finding it and keeping it
seem difficult to do.
Difficult because we think
that happiness is found
Only in the places where
wealth and fame abound.
And so we go on searching
in palaces of pleasure
Seeking recognition
and monetary treasure,
Unaware that happiness
is just a state of mind
Within the reach of everyone
who takes time to be kind.
For in making others happy
we will be happy, too.
For the happiness you give away
returns to shine on you.
Helen Steiner Rice

Growth Is Not An Optional Luxury

“But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” 2 Peter 3:18a (NASB)
Growth is not an optional luxury for the sincere Christian. When one becomes a Christian, that person realizes how much unlike the Master he or she really is and determines to become more like Him. The road to maturity is long and painful, but the development of the ability to minister to others in the name of Christ is a most satisfying reward.
“But speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ.” Ephesians 4:15 (NASB)
