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. Tap any title next to an arrow in the list below.

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


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.


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.


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.


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


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?


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.


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?
