“Happiness is good for you.” Jeremiah Burroughs
“Happiness is good for you?” Seems a bit of a no-brainer, doesn’t it. But Burroughs then gives eight reasons happiness is good for the Christian.
1. Happy Christians worship God as He ought to be worshipped. True worship is more than just outward form; it includes inward feelings, especially of delight. Worship and happiness go together.
2. Happy Christians make best use of the spiritual gifts God has given to them. God gives happy Christians more gifts and graces because the the lives of happy Christians are often a helpful influence on non-Christians.
