What is true happiness, and how can we find it?
Everyone wants to be happy. We spend our money, time, and energy chasing after our version of the good life, and we run ourselves into physical, mental, and emotional exhaustion on the way. But what if the happiness we're all striving for isn't the happiness we were created for?
Pastor and author Dr. Derwin L. Gray believes there is a better road to happiness, and it is found in the Beatitudes of Jesus. In this section of the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus revealed the shocking, countercultural path to true flourishing. It comes not through wealth, fame, or laughter, but through poverty, obscurity, and mourning.
True happiness comes to a heart directed toward the Kingdom of God and satisfied in Jesus the King.
