Home » Mr. Rogers Secret to Living a Satisfied Life



We continue the conversation about Mr. Rogers, of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, and he gives us the secret to a satisfied life. How many people are not satisfied in this life? Many people are only focused on the next thing to bring them satisfaction. We weren’t meant to be satisfied on this earth because only satisfaction can be found in a relationship with God. But many people keep trying to find their fulfillment and satisfaction in the temporary pleasures that only last for a day. So many are focused on themselves which, if you think about it, self-focus is like a black hole and you can get sucked into that and not even notice the other people around you. Because of this many are dry in their soul because they are only thinking of themselves. Turning our thoughts to others can bring satisfaction and empowers us because when we love others that is loving Jesus! This is even a command in Mark 12:31, “‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these. ESV”

Mr. Rogers, interviewed by Charlie Rose, gives us the secret to a satisfied life. “Have you ever known anybody who was really satisfied or happy, who had never made a difference in someone else’s life?” Charlie answered that no he had not heard of anyone satisfied that focused on themselves. This lines up with, Proverbs 11:25 Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered. ESV” When we bless someone else we ourselves will be blessed. Mr. Rogers gave a great example of how to live our lives for others! We can make the same impact in our lives no matter our platform if we abide with the Lord just like Mr. Rogers did. We want to hear your thoughts on this, you can email us at friends@greglancaster.org. Greg and John shared in this segment.
