The Pursuit of Happiness

We all want to be happy. That seems to be life's goal. To have that happy and joy filled life. We try everything to get it. Money, things, relationships, vacations, hobbies, recreation. We are all searching for that sweet spot. Trying to find happiness.

The Bible tells us how do be happy in Psalms 106:3 it says "Happiness comes to those who are fair to others and are always just and good."

Happiness is not about always getting what you want. It's not about money or things or a lack of problems. Happiness is not something that we even pursue. Happiness comes to us. It comes to us when we put others before ourselves and when we live according to God's ways.

This week, I want to look at a few things the Bible has to say about being happy. Check back throughout the week for more.
