Give Yourself to Others …

Archive for June 2012

I discovered a new movie today, Happy.  check it out at http://www.thehappymovie.com.

What’s interesting to me is the ultimate conclusion of the film.  The director takes you thru the typical set up of “What do you want most out of life?”  The most common answer is “to be happy.”  Then, you get all the research on what happiness is, how it can be measured, etc.  There are numerous stories about happy people in places and circumstances which will likely surprise you.

But the conclusion?

The single thing that makes most people happy is to be kind and serve others.  Wow!

I’ve only just begun to contemplate the implications on the message of Jesus.  For all the years, the world has sought happiness, and now the world is discovering (ever so slowly) that Jesus had the answer along.
