How to Live Happily

Devo by:

I believe that the most sincere thing we can desire for someone else is their happiness. We believe, and rightly so, that whether rich or poor, healthy or sick, happiness is the most important commodity that we posses.

I would like to share with you four basic rules that will contribute to your lifetime happiness if you put them into practice on a regular basis.

1. Live the "spiritual" life

Keep your priorities in order understanding that living according to the "pleasure" principle is eventually self-defeating. If you work at making the doing of God's will in your everyday life the priority objective, you will have your priorities straight and will build on sound judgment.

2. Live one day at a time

People ruin whatever happiness they have in their day by squandering their energy on tomorrow's problems. God has promised that He will supply exactly what we need… one day at a time; so enjoy the happiness you have today and do not waste it on worry for tomorrow. Also remember that few of our fears, if any, ever materialize.

3. Do not violate your conscience

Doing wrong always hurts us. No matter how small, no matter what others say, no matter what reasoning or lack of reasoning we use to permit ourselves to do wrong: when we sin we hurt our consciences and a hurt conscience hurts!!


Live life one day at a time. Do not violate your peace of mind with foolish sin and worldliness. Do not allow the past to ruin the present or frighten you for the future. Your past is gone, nailed to a cross on Golgotha… leave it there!!

If you are not a Christian then the only way to true happiness is to become a child of God through faith expressed in repentance and baptism in the name of Jesus.
