What is it that makes you happy? Quite often, what we think makes us happy and what God says will make us happy are two different things. It is not unusual for backslidden Christians to participate in lifestyles that ultimately places their spiritual life in jeopardy. Yet they justify their behavior thinking that what they are pursuing is what will bring them satisfaction. God’s Word declares, "Happy is the man that walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in His law he meditates day and night” (Psalm 1:1,2). In Matthew 5, Jesus reveals nine different marks of happiness in the Beatitudes. These will make up the majority of our lesson material for the next few weeks starting today in Matthew 5:3.
