Do You Want to Be Miserable?

March 22, 2021 Save Article

PRAY OVER THIS:

“...remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’"

(Acts 20:35)

PONDER THIS:

Unhappiness comes from mirrors. Happiness comes from windows.

If you want to be miserable, then think about yourself first...what you want, what people are saying about you, what you ought to have done for you, how down you feel, how good you feel. Just focus on yourself.

Feeling good yet? If you are, then something is wrong. Selfishness and happiness just don’t go hand in hand. If you are thinking it is better to receive than to give, you’ll never be happy. You’ll never experience the blessing of giving that Jesus taught.

PRACTICE THIS:

Hold out your hand and make a fist for at least one minute. Now, relax. Which feels better? Holding everything tight to yourself or releasing and giving to others.
