Morning Line: Want to be Happy? Give!
“The Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before.” Job 42:10 NKJV
Helping others brings happiness, but selfishness and un-forgiveness destroy!
Happiness doesn’t come by getting; it comes by forgetting yourself and living for others. Job, one of the richest men in his day, lost his health, his wealth, and his family. Then an amazing thing happened: “The Lord restored Job’s losses, when he prayed for his friends” (Job42:10 NKJV). Job actually got back twice what he lost. By reaching out to others instead of dwelling on his own problems that principle still works today. Jesus warned, “Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consist not in the abundance of the things which he possesses ” (Luke 12:15). God blesses you for one reason: to make you a blessing to others. You’re not supposed to be a warehouse—but a clearinghouse. For every verse in Scripture that promises material success, there’s another that speaks of the dangers of hoarding. So the word for you today is: helping others brings happiness and peace. Pray Father God who can I give a hand up? It will change their and your life! Smile you are about to see a miracle.
