THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS

Worship the LORD with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs. — Psalm 100:2
 
Few things bring us greater joy than serving our Creator.
When we are serving God, we are focused on what we
can give and not on what we are lacking. We focus on
what is good in our lives and not what is wrong. When
we contribute to God’s world we feel good about who
we are instead of upset about who we could or should
have been. When we bring joy to others, we can’t help
but light up with joy ourselves.
 
What’s more, serving the Lord is something that we can
do anytime, anywhere, and under any circumstances. In
times of abundance, we can give. In times of scarcity,
we can have faith. When things are easy, we can sing
out praises to God. And when times are tough, we can
call out to Him in prayer. In our homes or in our
workplaces – there is always someone to help or God’s
Word to share. The possibilities are endless.
We can always worship God, which means that we can
always be happy. No matter what! We don’t have to
pursue happiness. We just have to stop running away
from it – and serve the Lord today.
 
Try this ancient advice and think of how you can serve
the Lord today. How can you worship Him throughout the
day? Dedicate just one day – or even better – one week,
to give of yourself to God, to His children, and to His
world. You will be happy you did!
 
With prayers for shalom, peace,
Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein
