Happiness depends upon ourselves. (Aristotle, 4th century BC)
In the fast-paced society of modern life we seem to be running helter-skelter in the pursuit of happiness (which is our right according to the Declaration of Independence). Yet neither wealth nor the things it can buy seems to achieve the desired goal. Can the ancient Greek philosopher be right? No doubt we should be looking for the source of true happiness which comes from God.
Give me happiness, O Lord, for I give myself to you. . . Make me walk along the path of your commands, for that is where my happiness is found. (Psalm 86:4; 119:35).
