The way of happiness (Bible)

Happiness has been described, not as a destination or goal, but as a journey.

Here is the way of happiness

Contentment & Generosity

"The love of money" can lead to ...
  • Worry and loss of sleep
  • Disappointment
  • Grief and frunstration
Happiness comes to those who...
  • Are content with what they have
  • Are generous
  • Put people before things
Physical health and resilience
  • Be moderate in habits
  • Take good care of our body
  • View life as sacred
  • Control negative emotions
  • Focus on positive thoughts
  • Build resilience
Love promotes happiness because it...
  • Helps us to show sincere concern for the welfare of others
  • Can grow stronger over time
  • Gives strength and resilience to friendships and marriages
  • Helps children to thrive and feel secure
  • Makes us more like our creator
Forgiveness leads to...
  • Healthier relationships and inner peace 
  • Less anxiety, hostility, and stress
  • Improved physical, mental, and spiritual health
Purpose in life
God did not create the earth simply for nothing, but formed it to be inhabited.  To keep alive and mentally healthy we need something to live for.

Hope is an essential element of our spiritual lifeblood.
  • Wickedness will end; lasting peace for the righteous will follow
  • An end to warfare
  • No more sickness, suffering, or death
  • Ample food for all
  • A just ruler-ship by one world government
