Dave: God wants me to be happy!
Jeff: Well, that’s true!
Dave: But some people use that as a reason to leave a spouse, have an affair, do drugs, or engage in sin.
Jeff: But, those things don’t lead to happiness.
Dave: Cocaine can lead to a temporary happiness – but when you’ve lost your family, home, friends, health, and freedom being locked up in prison –
Jeff: You aren’t happy!
Dave: God sees things from a very long term perspective.
Jeff: Only He knows how deeply and profoundly sin will spoil our souls.
Dave: Our Father understands the duration of eternity, and how sin takes our craving for Heaven away.
Jeff: God wants you to be happy forever! Not just on Earth for a measly 100 years.
Dave: God wants eternally deep satisfaction for billions of millennium.
Jeff: He has directed us to obey him, and although sometimes that obedience temporarily causes dissatisfaction it will produce genuine joy and happiness.
Dave: Consider the person who saves their money for years, to buy a mansion. It was hard work – but well worth it.
