All human beings are alike in seeking happiness. Where they differ is in the objects from which they seek it. (Os Guinness, English author and social critic)
“The pursuit of happiness” is one of the rights expressed in the Declaration of Independence, and, no doubt, everyone wants to be happy. But where is happiness to be found? We look for it in entertainment, amusements, sports, games, and relationships, to name a few looked-after sources. Perhaps it would be helpful to look for true happiness or joy from our Creator.
To the person who pleases him, God gives wisdom, knowledge and happiness (Ecclesiastes 2:16). Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart (Psalm 37:4).
