Make Someone Happy

Personal happiness is most easily gained by bringing happiness to others.

Happiness may be temporary, but we all want it, and that’s okay, as long as we don’t depend on the emotion of happiness like an extreme athlete depends on adrenaline.

Here’s another thing we need to realize about happiness: It’s harder to come by when we place it in things. Whether we depend on cars, a home, a raise, an outfit, or a meal for happiness, our happiness meter is going to jump all over the place as these things come and go.

A better way to gain happiness is to do things for others. Make others happy, and the happiest person will be you. Make others happy all the time, and your happiness will turn to joy.

For I hope to visit you soon and to talk with you face to face. Then our joy will be complete. 2 John 12
