Truly Happy

There are many books written on how we can be "truly happy" in life. A lot of these speak about reaching our goals, living our dreams, achieving success or finding the right partner. It took David one line to recommend his success for the Blessed Life. This is his advice:

"The truly happy person
doesn’t follow wicked advice,
doesn’t stand on the road of sinners,
and doesn’t sit with the disrespectful." - Psalm 1:1 (CEV)

If you wanted to read it in a slightly different version, try this one:

"Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked,
    or stand around with sinners, or join in with mockers." (NLT)

I suppose the good news in this case is that we are clearly given a choice to be BLESSED, HAPPY, JOYFUL. Our choices will have a direct bearing on whether or not we will walk in God's Way or the potentially dangerous way of others. 

Living in Grace
