When you think of all the things that could make you happy, have you ever considered doing kind acts for others as one of them? Studies have shown that doing things for others will cause you to be happier than doing things for yourself. It showed people are actually happier by doing intentional acts of kindness for others than going out and spending money or doing something for themselves. As we give of ourselves in blessing and helping someone else, it will cause more happiness in our lives. Selfishness or not caring for others is a deterrent to being happy. When it comes to God, He really knows what’s best for our spiritual and emotional health. It’s up to us to walk in it. Many people are looking for happiness. Maybe beginning to do kind acts towards one another would be a good start. The Bible says we are to let our light shine before men that our Father in Heaven would be glorified. In return, God helps us as we purpose to please Him. Happier people are kind people and kind people are happier people.
