Where are you getting your happiness?

Here is a crucial concept: If you put your happiness in temporary things then your happiness will be temporary.

If I could just get this deal, I know I will be happy. When I get my degree, I can be happy. When I get married, then I can be happy. When we have a child, then I know we will be happy. When I get that new job, I know I will be happy. When the company gets to the next level, then I can be happy. When I get a new car, then I will be happy. When we fix up the house, then I will be happy. When I get a boat, then I will be happy. When we go on vacation, then I will be happy. When my children grow up, then I can be happy. When my spouse changes her attitude, then I can be happy. If I looked better and prettier, then I would be happy. If I had smaller ears and bigger feet then I would be happy. When we win the championship, then I can be happy. When I get that next sale, then I can be happy. When I am earning more money, then I can be happy. When my boss treats me with respect, then I can be happy. When I lose more weight, then I can be happy. When we sell the house, then we can be happy. When my wife is cured of cancer, then I will be happy. When we pay off the mortgage, then we can be happy. When my sister asks for forgiveness, then I can be happy. When my wife stops nagging me, then I can be happy. When my husband starts loving me, then I can be happy. If I was taller, I would be happy. If my parents had not divorced, I would be happy. When the government pays off the debt, then I will be happy. When the radiation leak is fixed in Japan, then I will be happy. When everybody is nice to me, then I will be happy. When my political party is in power, then I will be happy.

Happiness is temporary. Man is always trying to fix the outside to look better, to accumulate more and to have more power which is temporal. Man is looking at the wrapping paper of the gift. The gift is inside. You must open the gift of love, forgiveness, peace and joy. The gift is in Christ Jesus. You are created for the Spirit of God to reside in you. HIS SPIRIT brings eternal JOY in the LORD.

God is looking at your heart. Your character and who you are is inside you. The Kingdom of God is righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit which is eternal.

If you put your happiness in temporary things then your happiness will be temporary.
