How Can You Have a Happy Life?

 SECTION 2

What Do We Need to Be Happy?

What Do We Need to Be Happy?

“They will actually sit, each one under his vine and under his fig tree, and there will be no one making them tremble.”MICAH 4:4.

BASICALLY, the requirements for a happy life are few and simple:

  • Peace and security

  • Loving family and friends

  • Good health

  • Adequate food, clothing, and shelter

  • Purpose in life

  • Hope for the future

For many people, some or all of these requirements are hard to meet. The Scriptures provide realistic and practical guidance that can help us make the best of our circumstances, whatever they may be. More important, the Scriptures provide a foundation for confidence that the conditions on earth will be much better in the near future. Indeed, future conditions will be as God intended them to be.
