In continuing with our Finding Happiness series, we learn that it makes God happy to share his joy and love with us. When we get our happiness from him, we want to share that happiness with others. Check out our newest episode of One Quick Thought to learn more about how to love and share your happiness with those around you.
Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.

I take joy in doing your will, my God, for your instructions are written on my heart.”  I have told all your people about your justice.

I have told everyone in the great assembly of your unfailing love and faithfulness.

Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.  Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me.
