Go And Do What Makes You Happy

I will treasure my kids’ unique personalities and foster their unique talents.  Psalms 139:14  and I’m a better parent when I take care of myself.  1 Corinthians 6:19-20, 1 Peter 5:7

13 So be watchful, and control yourselves completely. In this way, put your hope in the grace that lies ahead. This grace will be brought to you when Jesus Christ returns. 14 You should obey your Father. You shouldn’t give in to evil desires. They controlled your life when you didn’t know any better. 15 The God who chose you is holy. So you should be holy in all that you do. 16 It is written, “Be holy, because I am holy.”  1 PETER 1:13-16

  • What makes you happy?
  • When you do that thing that makes you happy, how long does it make you happy?  Does that mean you keep doing that thing over and over so you can keep being happy?
  • Read Ephesians 1:4 together.  “For He chose us in Him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in His sight.”
  • Who chose us? (God)
  • What was His long term plan? (Jesus)

Because God’s plan has always been for us to know and believe in Jesus we don’t have to live miserably.  As we grow in holiness we can truly know what happiness and joy really look like.

  • The thing that makes you happy, does it also make you more holy, look more like Jesus?  How?  If you said no, is there any way you could change your focus in what you are doing that could help you look more like Jesus, holy?

We are going to plan a fun family activity together.  What is something we can do together that makes us happy?  How can we include God in what we are doing?  Make your plan to do this activity in the next month.
