Our Attitudes Color Our Whole Personnality - Proverbs 15:15

The secret to a happy heart

“All the days of the afflicted are evil: but he that is of a merry heart hath a continual feast”. Proverbs 15:15.

Our attitudes color our whole personality. We cannot always choose what happens to us, but we can choose our attitude toward each situation.

The secret to a happy heart is filling our mind with thoughts that are true, pure, and lovely, with thoughts that dwell on the good things in life (Philippians 4:8). This was Paul's secret as he faced imprisonment, and it can be ours as we face the struggles of daily living. Look at your attitudes and then examine what you allow to enter your mind and what you choose to dwell on. You may need to make some changes.

Happiness isn’t proportional to money. Happiness is a state of the heart that money can’t touch. Happy are the people whose God is the LORD (Psalms 144:15).

Happy is the person whose God is his help and hope (Psalms 146:5). Happy is the person who finds wisdom and gains understanding (Proverbs 3:13). The person who has mercy on the poor is happy (Proverbs 14:21).

He who trusts in the Lord is happy (Proverbs 16:20). He who fears the Lord is happy (Proverbs 28:14), as well as he who keeps the Law (Proverbs 29:18).
