Pearls of Wisdom

Pearls of Wisdom

Richard Roberts

Pearls of wisdom often come from children. A couple and their 9-year-old daughter were riding in their car, and the husband was sharing with his wife the news of a big sale he was about to wrap up at work. “That will give us enough money to buy a new car,” he said. The little girl, listening quietly, spoke up from the backseat, “If you’re making all that money, why aren’t you guys happier?”

Happiness is not something we can buy to satisfy the yearnings we feel. To be happy, the human spirit must be fulfilled. Jesus explained in John 6:35 how to find true happiness: “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.”

Happiness is Christ living in your heart. He’s the fountainhead from which all true happiness flows.
