What does it mean to be a Christian?
Everybody wants to be happy. People try, primarily, three different ways.
Some people look for happiness through acquiring possessions. Get, get! Get all you can, can all you get, sit on the can and spoil the rest! That’s the philosophy of many people. “I’ll be happy if I just get more things.”
Some people look for happiness by experiencing pleasure. They’ll try this drug or that pill or that experience or that trip — looking for pleasure to be the meaning of life.
Some people look for happiness by gaining prestige and power. They think, “If I’m just liked, if I’m just famous, if I’m popular then I’ll be happy in life.”
But the fact is real happiness comes from understanding it’s not pleasure, possessions or power. But from understanding my purpose. That’s where real happiness in life comes from. Understanding your purpose in life. That is real happiness
