Here’s something I teach on with regularity: God is not concerned with your happiness. He’s concerned with your obedience.

That’s not an easy truth. It’s not a pleasant truth.

But it is a “true” truth.

And it comes with a promise: any time we pursue happiness as a goal, whenever we “just want to be happy,” then happiness will be elusive. The more we pursue it, the farther away it becomes.

But when we pursue godliness, a make-the-devil-mad kind of spirituality, then happiness happens. It is a by-product of a life lived for God. It’s a result.

Jesus said it this way in Matthew 6:33: “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added unto you.”

Words to live by.
