February 22: Are You Happy?

Day 8


Happiness is not achieved by the pursuit of happiness, but rather by right living.


Talk to someone close to you about what it means to be happy. Discuss how you can help each other focus on the true source of happiness.

If you’re reading Perfectly Yourself, read pages 39–45 (paperback version) or pages 41–47 (hardcover version).


Jesus, I know that in every moment of my life, I choose between happiness and misery. Help me to choose happiness.

What do you do when you're unhappy?
