Remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how He said, It is more blessed to give than to receive (Acts 20:35). Unhappiness comes from mirrors. Happiness comes from windows.

MARCH 22

The Recipe for Misery

“...remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how He said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.” - Acts 20:35

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.

Hold out your hand and make a fist for at least one minute. Now, relax. Which feels better? Now imagine if your spirit is tight and how that will quench His work in your life.
