For the sake of discussion, I would be quoting here a line from a Church Hymn. This is taken from the LDS Hymn No. 223, entitled “Have I Done Any Good?”
“Have I done any good in the world today?
Have I helped anyone in need?
Have I cheered up the sad and made someone feel glad?
If not, I have failed indeed.”
Earlier, I had posted an article about the reason why man has to search for happiness and that kind of happiness is an eternal one. And it could only be realized when the man has attained eternal life. It seems to be difficult to get it, but it is possible.
Now, another similar idea has come to my mind on how we could sustain making a person happy or if we fail. What then?
“Have I Done Any Good?” is our Church hymn that we used to sing every time we meet in the Church for a Sunday School class, for a leadership meeting and another gathering we have in the Church. This hymn tells us the several reasons why we fail in any manner we do.
This points out that pure religion which the Scripture is telling us about. And what is this? “Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted.” (James 1:27, KJV)
When you make someone happy, you will be surprised that someone will do that too to you. Happiness begets happiness.
