Lesson 10

What does the Bible have to say on this issue? To some the topic of happiness and the Bible might sound like an oxymoron. The Bible and religion is something solemn and serious? The word “happy” seems rather flippant. In fact, the word is surprisingly absent from most modern translations. It only occurs in a handful of passages in the Old Testament, and not once in the New Testament. Although the actual word “happy” does not appear frequently in the Bible, the Bible offers much practical insight on how our dreams of happiness can become reality.
