Can you still be happy when you’re poor? When you don’t have food at your table? When you’re in pain and weeping?
Jesus said, you are blessed — or happy — for when you are poor or hungry or weeping and you find comfort and happiness not in riches and pleasure and fun but in Jesus, you can still be happy.
In fact, that’s the key to happiness. That’s the key to TRUE happiness — when Jesus is the only source of joy.
This world can offer us the good things. Jesus offers the better things. And if we keep our focus off of this world and eyes on our eternal hope with God, we’ll get the true perspective of our sufferings on earth.
