"Joy in service"

Everyone wants to be happy. Everyone wants to feel satisfied and fulfilled. But people don't always know how to attain this objective, and many times their efforts end in disappointment and disillusion.

There is a sure way to find lasting happiness, however. It lies in serving and obeying God. In a message to her Church, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, remarks, "Happiness consists in being and in doing good; only what God gives, and what we give ourselves and others through His tenure, confers happiness: conscious worth satisfies the hungry heart, and nothing else can." Message to The Mother Church for 1902, p. 17.
