Putting Others Before Self


#1

The Lord would rather have us be filled with His continuous joy than with fleeting happiness. Like infatuation is to love, happiness is to joy. One is emotionally powerful but short-lived, while the other is meaningful and abiding. If our eyes are centered on ourselves and our own happiness then we become the most important thing and that is the opposite of true Christianity. But it is better to put others before our self.
