On CBS News this week, a professor described research into what makes us happy. What makes you happy? In Mark 6:14-29, King Herod makes yet another terrible decision with an unhappy outcome. He was so consumed by the cares of this world that he couldn’t see straight, and he and his whole country suffered the consequences. God provides a life-giving alternative described in Ephesians 1:3-14 . Instead of being motivated by short-term cares OF this world, God chose us to care FOR the world and to live full of praise and thanks to God, providing a deep joy and happiness.
Stay informed and get involved! I hope to see you at the congregational potluck and forum on Sunday and at one of the small group discussions afterwards. Sign up at the following link, (Click Here).
