For How Long?

In Spirit Renewal by Rachel Schultz

For How Long?


“If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap. If you want happiness for a day, go fishing. If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune, If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody.”

–Chinese Proverb

When happiness is tied to things or experiences, it eventually fades away. New cars break down, vacations come to an end, and life moves on. Much of what drives the human spirit in its pursuits and achievements is based on passing whims and desires. If we could only see life through God’s eyes.

From time to time we catch a glimpse of the passion that lights God’s heart when someone embarks on a mission to make the world a better place by giving their time, effort and means to cure diseases, help orphans, lift broken spirits, win peace, fight poverty, and share the gospel of Jesus!

Isn’t it wonderful that when we seek to bless others our own happiness is increased.
