The Pursuit of Happiness
The most important thing is to enjoy your life—to be happy—it’s all that matters. (Audrey Hepburn, late movie actress)
Hepburn certainly caught the apparent aim of today’s modern society. Whatever the cost, and no matter who else may be involved, happiness seems to be the goal of almost everyone. Wanting to be happy is not wrong, of course. but happiness is not a goal to be achieved. It is the result of pursuing a life of integrity and service. Want to be happy? Love and serve others.
For the Scriptures say, “If you want to enjoy life and see many happy days, keep your tongue from speaking evil and your lips from telling lies (1 Peter 3:10).
