How to be Truly Happy
—The secrets of happiness revealed

This series of lessons will reveal the secrets of achieving true happiness in life. Some of these secrets are surprising and they are things that worldly people may not evaluate as ways to be happy. Touch any title next to an arrow in the list below.

arrow Seven Lesser ThingsThe things that most people strive for, and through which they seek happiness, are pretty well summed up under seven headings.

arrow Put All Your Trust in JesusThere is one sure way to be happy, and that's to believe in Jesus —to the extent that you put all your trust and faith in him.

arrow Let God Deal with Your EnemiesIf you are the victim of wrongdoing, seeking revenge may only make you more miserable. There is a better way that ensures happiness: let God deal with your enemies.

arrow Make This Life a PilgrimageRegard this life as a pilgrimage to Heaven, and this world as a foreign land. When that is your philosophy of life, happiness is assured.

arrow Put Yourself LastPut yourself last? Ha! Are you crazy? No I'm not. Putting yourself last is a key to happiness.

arrow Seek Peace and Pursue itThe Bible tells us how to really be happy. One way is to seek and pursue peace. But what is peace, and how do you get it?

arrow Be a DonkeyIf we call someone a donkey, we probably don't mean it as a compliment. But the Bible encourages us to be donkeys in a most surprising sense.

arrow The Joy of the Lord is Your Strength(Nehemiah 8:10). God’s heaven is joyful. “The Lord’s strength and joy are in his place” (1Chron 16:27). How do we give joy to the Lord, and how does this make us strong?
