All human beings are alike in seeking happiness. Where they differ is in the objects from which they seek it. (Os Guinness, British social critic)
“Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” are the rights of Americans, according to the Declaration of Independence. But, where do we look for happiness? Fulfilling work? A happy home? Growing investments? The pleasures of life? Success in business, sports, entertainment? Some are worthy involvements, but lasting joy is to be sought elsewhere.
To the person who pleases him, God gives wisdom, knowledge, and happiness. (Ecclesiastes 2:26)
