True Happiness

This morning I saw two ads for cigarettes. They both promised happiness and pleasure. But that is not true! It has been proven that cigarettes can lead to illness and death. The writers of these ads used deception to try and fool us into buying their product.
That is how the devil works, too. He makes sinful things look good and pleasurable. But often the things he wants us to do only lead to sin and death.
Verse 11 tells us what really can make us happy. “You will teach me the right way to live. Just being with you, Lord, will bring complete happiness. Being at your right side will bring happiness forever.” This was true when God made the world, and it is still true today. True happiness only comes from God!
Be careful when you want things that the world offers you. These things are filled with pride and lies. Believe God’s Word and follow it. Then you will have real joy.
