Don’t let your happiness depend on something that you may lose. (C. S. Lewis, British professor and apologist)
What make you happy? When your favorite sports team wins a championship? When your investments earn a significant gain? Perhaps, when you receive acclaim because of some noteworthy achievement? Unfortunately, all of those great accomplishments are transitory; they’re gone all too quickly. Better find your joy in those things that are eternal.
All that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life . . . is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever (1 John 2:16-17).
