Frances Ridley Havergal's thoughts on self-centered happiness.

 

From Chapter 4 - Kept for the Master's Use:

Shall 'the flesh' have the use of them? Shall they carry us hither and thither merely because we like to go, merely because it pleases our selves to take this walk or pay this visit? And after all, what a failure it is! If people only would believe it, self-pleasing is always a failure in the end. Our good Master gives us a reality and fullness of pleasure in pleasing Him which we never get out of pleasing ourselves.
