What Makes You Happy - Part 1

No Thing

Happiness is more about who than what.

Happiness is always associated with a who or two.

Happy what always leads to happy'what else.'

Global X syndrome - How can they be so happy, they don't have anything?

In the end, you will have relational not possessional regrets.

"I don't need anyone in order to be happy."

When we can't get what we want, we tell ourselves we don't really want it.

What makes you happy?    No thing makes me happy.

Happy people are at peace with: 
- themselves        
- other people        
- God

Peace with God paves the way to peace with ourselves and equips us to make peace with others.

Teacher, which is the most important commandment in the law of Moses?  Matthew 22:36 NLT

Jesus replied, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind."  Matthew 22:37 NLT

This is the first and greatest commandment.  A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’  Matthew 22:38-39 NLT

God is in the way of my happiness.

Sin separates you from others.
Sin separates you from God.
Sin separates you from yourself.

"If I ever...I wouldn't be able to live with myself."

Sin separates by substituting.

Sin makes a happy promise that sin can't keep.

Sin is not your friend.

These desires give birth to sinful actions. And when sin is allowed to grow, it gives birth to death.  James 1:15 NLT
