“Three grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something
to love, and something to hope for.”
— Joseph Addison
Seems simple enough right, if you have those three things you have the essentials to happiness. From a Christian point of view, Jesus provides all three. You live a Christian life (something to do), you love Jesus because Jesus loves you (Something to love), and you hope for eternal life… even though once you are born again you have eternal life pretty much locked. So Christianity can be the ticket to happiness. Definetly a way to look at it.
Now what about marriage? Something to do, the best husband or wife you can be, something to love, your spouse of course, and then finally something to hope for… a life of extraordinary moments with each other. So marriage can also be the key to happiness.
*Please don’t rant, state your opinion I am not saying that to be happy you have to be Christian or Married, I am just stating what I believe, not telling you what to do. So if you feel different use the comments(it is encouraged), don’t rant against my point of view… its futile (I’m always right) 😉
So… homework, what other things can we apply this three essentials to? do you have the three essentials already? do you believe in happiness?
