True Pleasure

April 12, 2011

“Lovers of pleasure, rather than lovers of God.”  In II Timothy 3:14  Paul uses this description of people in the last days.  It is a shame that people seek the pleasures of this world before developing their relationship with God.   I understand that people want to be happy.  Aristotle taught that all humanity shared the same goal.  He called it eudaimonia; which is Greek for happiness, or flourishing.  What so many people fail to realize is that true happiness begins in our relationship with God.  Psalms 16:11 says “You will show me the path of life.  In Your presence is fullness of joy:at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.  So if you truly want to be happy,  “Seek first the kingdom of God, and its righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”  Mathew 6:33
