REFLECTION FOR THE WEEK
What WON’T MAKE YOU HAPPY
Matt Miofsky says that “to the extent that you’re investing your time, money, and energy in things…just know that these things may contribute to your happiness, but by themselves they won’t enable you to achieve it.”
Action: How can you arrange your happiness perspective so that your life is filled with the good relationship that will bring you lasting happiness: our relationship with God, ourselves and other people.
Prayer: Gracious God, you know what each carries in our lives. You know where we’re looking and what we’re chasing in our search for happiness. And so, God, today help us to listen to the wisdom of so many who have come before us who say it’s not money, work, power or even fun; it’s what we invest in good relationships with you, with ourselves, and with others. May your Holy Spirit fill us with the wisdom to ultimately live out of the truth that you teach us. We pray these things in the name of the one who came to restore our relationship with you, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
