But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it (Luke 11:28).
As a nation, we are a people who believe in
the right of every person to “life, liberty,
and the pursuit of happiness.” The problem
arises when we begin to define the best way
to achieve that elusive goal of happiness. Jesus
defines it for us.
Real happiness is one that meets with God’s
approval. And that is realized when one “hears
the word of God and keeps it.”
Many things in life can bring one a measure
of joy, but the highest joy is realized when we
have the assurance that God is pleased with
us. That joy can only be ours by hearing His
word and obeying it.
