Is it possible for human beings to be happy without goodness and love ? Not according to God. It's not possible to enjoy true happiness without goodness and love. The world cannot enjoy freedom from sorrow and sadness until the cause of sorrow and sadness is removed from human hearts.  Many, as they look around in society and see some of the problems like violence, crime, poverty, racism, corruption, come to the wrong conclusion that these symptoms are the cause of the problems. The truth is that sadness, sorrow, suffering and sickness never existed until SIN took up residence in the human heart. Sin is the principle that God is working to deliver humanity from.

God desired to bring all peoples under His merciful rule. He desired that the earth should be filled with joy and peace. He created man for happiness, and He longs to fill human hearts with the peace of heaven.  Seeking the good of others is the way in which true happiness can be found. Man does not work against his own interest by loving God and his fellow men. The more unselfish his spirit, the happier he is, because he is fulfilling God's purpose for him. The breath of God is breathed through him, filling him with gladness. True and abiding happiness can never be derived from any human being. Our happiness comes not from what is around us, but from what is within us; not from what we have, but from what we are. Real happiness is found only in being good and doing good. Notice the Bible testimony about Jesus Christ:  How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him. (Acts 10:38) God wants to and has the power to enable human beings to do good consistently and continuously. We have to understand that if we don't find it appealing, we could never be happy in heaven because in heaven goodness and love prevails for eternity.

Psalms 37:3,27,100:5/James 4:17/3 John 1:11/Galatians 6:10/John 5:28,29/Ecclesiastes 2:26
