Found this quote by George Mueller interesting:

“The Lord taught me that the first business I needed to attend to every day was to have my spirit happy in the Lord.  My first concern shouldn’t be thinking of ways to serve and glorify the Lord, but rather, how to get my spirit into a happy state, and how to nourish my inner man.” 

What do you all think?  At first I was kind of taken aback-first concern shouldn’t be thinking of ways to serve and glorify?  Isn’t this the purpose to which he created us?  To glorify him?  But then I remembered “glorify Him AND enjoy Him forever.”  I’ve often heard (from my father) that the best way to glorify God is to enjoy Him forever, or “Glorify God by enjoying Him forever.” 

I’d love to hear your thoughts on it…
