Holiness vs Happiness

“God’s great concern for us primarily is not our happiness, but our holiness. In His great love to us He is determined to bring us to that, and He employs many differing means to that end. Our failure to realize that often causes us to stumble and, in our sin and folly, at times even to misunderstand completely some of God’s dealings with us. Like foolish children we feel that our Heavenly Father is unkind to us and we pity ourselves and feel sorry for ourselves and feel that we are being dealt with harshly. That, of course, leads to depression and it is all due to our failure to realize God’s glorious purposes with respect to us.” Dr. Martin Lloyd-Jones
