    More about the topic

    Doing good for others is a double joy – the others will be happy, and we will be happy ourselves! That’s how God has decided it should be, and it works every time.

    In the film, Theo got to experience this when he chose to play with a boy that the others weren’t bothered about. And in the end, the others joined in too, so everyone was happy. But Theo had to make a choice first not to think about himself, but about what would make the other person happy. Jesus was also like that – He was always thinking of the others and wanted them to thrive. He taught us that we won’t be happy when we think of ourselves, but when we choose to do something good for the others, then we will also thrive. We can also learn to make these choices!
