True happiness depends upon a close alliance with God, dependence upon God, and obedience to God. The delusions of worldly honor, the emptiness of riches, the stupidity of selfishness, and the blindness of mere material fortune are manifest all around us.

All the pleasures which the world can give are nothing compared with the priceless riches and happiness which come from close daily communion with God.

It is your great privilege to share bountifully in this spiritual feast, to receive God’s thoughts for your continual spiritual nourishment, and, what is of transcendent value, to have the constant assurance of your divine sonshipTo emulate the life of Christ is to keep very close to the heart of God.
