09 Oct Hoping for Happiness | Barnabas Piper
2020: Book #32
“People want work that matters and relationships that fulfill.”
“Dreams are the wishes our hearts make, but our hearts are not reliable guides. Our hearts have taken good things from god and conjured up fever dreams of them as things in which we can find our identity on which we can build our lives.”
“But there is more than just “some good” in this world; there is an abundance if we would open our eyes, discard our evangeliguilt, and recognize that this is still God’s creation. It is still the creation of the Father of lights, from whom every good and perfect gift comes.”
Those are all quotes from the new and impactful book from Barnabas Piper titled, “Hoping for Happiness: Turning Life’s Most Elusive Feeling into Lasting Reality.”
Every Christian should read this.
Do you think happiness and holiness are polar opposites?
Ever have guilt because you’re not the serious one?
What kind of happiness does the Bible speak of?
Get this book.
