Depression-e1310563190145

“For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.” – Luke 14:11

We have more people in our nation struggling with depression than any other time in history. And for that reason, millions of people are on anti-depression drugs.

Depression can be caused by a number of things but one of the leading causes is because of the view we have about ourselves. Society says, you should have a high self-esteem. The problem with this view is when your life does not meet up to your expectations, it often will lead to depression.

According to the Jesus and other teachings found throughout the bible, the key to overcoming depression is not having a higher self-esteem but humility… esteeming others better than yourself. Studies have shown that people who are serving others are happier and less likely to suffer from depression.

If you are suffering from depression, find ways to serve others today.
