There's a myth in our culture that says the people who have the most stuff are the happiest people. But chasing all these things will not bring happiness. Happiness is a by-product of living a blessed life (living with awareness of God-is-with-me-right-now). That's confidence...and confident people are happy people.
Psalm 15 explains how to get that confidence of living in God's presence.
1. Speak the truth from a sincere heart.
2. Keep and honor your word.
3. Give freely and generously.
4. Stand with those who need justice.
Am I being sincerely truthful?
Are there any unkept promises?
Am I willing to give generously?
Am I standing up for justice?
The blessed life is all about the heart.
