Be Happy In the Lord!

It is by nature that WE, the human race are never contented with what we have. There is just this one-itsy-bitsy thing that we must have: then, we will be happy. But when that one thing you want more than anything else is finally ours... are we then happily contented? No. We work hard, cajole, snatch, connive, whine, pray to reach that unreachable state of happiness.

Have you turned your Bible to New Testament's Book of Matthew?

Matthew 5:3-12

Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.
Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.
Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
