Never put the key to happiness in someone else’s pocket. (Author unknown)
What is it that makes you happy? Maybe it’s winning at sports? Or, acing an exam. More often, it’s a person—someone you like to be with. Are you, perhaps, the person who someone else is depending upon for their happiness? Be warned: true, lasting happiness is rarely to be found in another imperfect human being, because God alone is its true source.
To the person who pleases him, God gives wisdom, knowledge and happiness. (Ecclesiastes 2:16)
