Recipe for Being Happy

A Recipe for Being HappyDue to the weather today, we only had one assembly, so just one lesson too. Today’s lesson was to be the final lesson in a series that went along with the one that Cody did last week on the Beatitudes. The title of the lesson was “A Recipe for Being Happy”. So what types of ingredients is Abe suggesting we use for this tasty sounding meal? Like Cody’s lesson from last week, you can turn to Matthew chapter 5 for most of the ingredients.

All humans want to be happy. Some want happiness more than anything in the world. But what is TRUE happiness and how can we get it?

The Beatitudes

Cody presented a lesson on what are commonly referred to as the “Beatitudes”. The passage shown below is a short but important passage for all those who would follow after God through Christ. These versus give hope to us when we feel outnumbered. They help us stay focused, and remind us to not see what is around us, but look for the reward we’ll one day receive.

The-Beatitudes“And seeing the multitudes, He went up on a mountain, and when He was seated His disciples came to Him. Then He opened His mouth and taught them, saying: “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled. Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God. Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.” (Matthew 5:1-12 NKJV)

How Will I Be Remembered?

How will I be remembered?Throughout the history of Biblical text, we can read of men and women who literally changed the course of history. Some made positive changes, many made negative changes to history, and all have led us to where we are today.

Each of us have good and bad qualities with our personalities and our actions. Each day we have a chance to do good for our fellow man/woman, and to show Christ’s example, or we can just get by and do nothing to profit those around us for good.

Abe’s lessons yesterday take us into our lives by looking at the lives of some of the key figures throughout the Bible. Who they were, how they acted, what their convictions were, and what the results were.

While we may never be an Abraham, a Noah, or a Joseph, we can try to embody some of their best attributes and try to loose the ones we have that are not helping us climb the narrow path to heave.

Recordings of both of Abe’s lessons are below. Please take a moment to listen to them, or download for your study, devotion, or sharing with others. How you’ll be remembered may just depend on what you do next…
