Finding True Joy: Bad, Good, and God Joy // Discovering the Keys to Lasting Happiness
Have you ever wondered why you and the people around you do certain things? The reason is simple – we all want to be happy.
Whether it’s playing video games, scrolling through social media, reading books, or spending time with loved ones, we make choices based on the idea that they will bring us happiness. We are all on a constant pursuit of joy.
However, not everything that brings us happiness lasts. We might buy something expensive that ends up collecting dust in our garage, or indulge in a treat that momentarily satisfies our cravings but leaves us wanting more.
So how do we find lasting happiness? According to the Bible, there are three types of happiness: bad joy, good joy, and God joy.
Bad joy refers to finding happiness in disobedient and sinful behaviors. While these actions may bring us short-term pleasure, they often have negative consequences. For example, playing video games instead of obeying our parents might make us happy in the moment, but it can strain our relationships and lead to negative outcomes.
God warns us against seeking bad joy because he knows that it ultimately leads to disappointment and unhappiness.
Good joy is finding happiness in the blessings and gifts that God provides. It’s enjoying the good things in life that come from God’s hand, such as food, relationships, and experiences. God wants us to appreciate and enjoy these blessings, but he also wants us to recognize that they are temporary and not the ultimate source of joy.
While good joy brings us happiness, it is still limited and doesn’t provide lasting fulfillment.
God joy is the deepest and most lasting source of happiness. It comes from being in the presence of God and experiencing his love, grace, and forgiveness. When we truly understand and embrace the fact that God is with us and for us, it brings us a joy that surpasses any temporary pleasure or blessing.
God joy is the kind of happiness that sustains us through life’s ups and downs. It is the joy that Jesus experienced even as he endured the cross for our sake. It is the joy that empowers us to live courageously and generously, even in difficult circumstances.
As followers of Jesus, our goal should be to seek God joy above all else. We should prioritize cultivating a relationship with God and finding our happiness in his presence, rather than chasing after temporary pleasures.
true and lasting happiness is found in God joy. It surpasses the temporary pleasures of bad joy and the limited satisfaction of good joy. It is a joy that can sustain us through the challenges of life and provide us with a deep sense of fulfillment. So let us seek God joy and experience the fullness of happiness that he offers.
