The story is told of a rich man who tried many things in his search for true happiness, but it was not until a wise man encouraged him to begin doing things for other people that he discovered true joy. Because the number of people needing to be served is endless, he finally found the happiness he had once searched for.
That man’s story parallels that of King Solomon who made the same mistake—seeking happiness as an end in itself. Solomon discovered near the end of his life that seeking God, not happiness, brought with it the kind of satisfaction he had sought in other ways.
