Money, Fame, and Power can't buy happiness. We learn that every year as famous people commit suicide, OD on drugs, or crash and burn in an amazing variety of ways. I have treated some of the wealthiest people in our nation in rehab! So is happiness impossible to truly have? America is the one place where if true happiness were possible this would be the place to attain it:
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."—Declaration of Independence, In Congress, July 4th 1776.
Our Congress got it right. God has endowed us with the right to life, to liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. We can live as we wish. But if we want to live forever we give up our independence of Him in this temporary life for a more abundant life with God in Eternity.
But God didn't intend for us to live miserably here. Jesus came to give us life and life more abundantly!
