>The Pursuit of Happiness….

Posted: July 4, 2009 in Christ, Happiness

>The founding fathers of the United States stated that one of our unalienable rights is the “pursuit of happiness.” The dictionary definition of “happiness” is: good fortune; pleasure; contentment; joy. I have never met anyone that didn’t desire to be “happy”. Our culture plays to this common desire by trying to sell things and services that will supposedly bring one “happiness”. Most people find real “happiness” elusive because they fall for this bait of “more things”. They get caught in the “pursuit” instead of making sure what they are seeking can really be attained.

Let me ask you these questions: What to you would be complete happiness? How are you currently pursuing this course? Is what you are desiring God-centered?

What are you currently chasing that God is asking you to let go of?

Bottom line: Don’t let your freedom to pursue happiness be the very thing that enslaves you.

“Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added.” Matt. 6:33

Pursue Christ,

Nathan
