Godly vs Worldly Lifestyles
The Difference Between Happiness & Joy
If you ask people what they really want in life, they usually say: "To be happy!" But happiness depends on what happens to you.
The Bible talks instead about the joy that comes from living the way God wants us to live.
THE BEATITUDES get their name from the Latin word beatus, meaning blessed, with which Jesus prefaced his statements about how to live a godly life. And he went on to spell out how to experience God's blessing in MATTHEW Chapter 5 verses 3-12.
Below is a summary of what he said.
It is clear that God's view of what makes people happy is very different from the world's view.
Q What makes you really happy?
Q Do you know the joy that comes from knowing Jesus?
