The most obvious lesson in Christ’s teaching is that there is no happiness in having and getting anything, but only in giving.
I repeat, there is no happiness in having or in getting but only in giving.
And half the world is on the wrong scent in the pursuit of happiness.
They think it consists in having and getting, and in being served by other.
It consists in giving and serving others.
He that would be great among you, said Christ, let him serve.
He that would be happy, let him remember that there is but one way – it is more blessed, it is more happy, to give than to receive.
