Scripture: Matthew 5:1–5:12
“I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that the average person isn’t happy. At the same time, happiness is really the goal of life for just about everybody. We don’t really want fame, power, or money. We’ve just bought into the idea that they will make us happy.
The question we think many people ask, is “Does God want people to be happy?” Of course he does. He created us for joy. But the problem is that His version of happiness and His path to happiness are very different than ours. Faith in God means trusting that His way to ultimate joy is the true and best way even if it doesn’t always seem logical to us. On August 27 at Heartland, we start a new series in which we discover God’s way to happiness.”
