Happiness Level Three – Serving Others

Happiness Level Three is about making an optimal positive difference with my life.  For Christians, the emphasis is really on love of neighbor, and deep, long-term happiness which comes from giving of ourselves to others.  The virtue of love is dominant in Level Three – the readiness to lay down our lives for our friends.

The friendship which draws human beings together in a tender bond is sweet to us because out of many minds it forges a unity.
– St. Augustine
PRAYER:  Father, help us to seek the values that will bring us lasting joy in this changing world.  In our desire for what you promise make us one in mind and heart.  (From the Church’s liturgy)
APPLICATION:  Today I will guard against thoughts that would cause me to feel alienated or separated from others.  I will look for, and be glad in, the good news I see in others.
