Psalm 100:4, Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name.
If you want to be happy, “Spend Time with Happy People.” According to a recent study of 4,700 people, it was determined that happiness was contagious. The study found that happy people are often the center of social networks that is comprised of similarly happy people. Interestingly, the study couldn’t determine the exact cause of the trickle-down effect of happiness. The study could only determine that the trickle-down does exist. So, if you want to be happier, hang out with happy people, and there’s no better place to find a bunch of happy people than at church this Sunday. Why are Christians so happy? Because that’s what allows us to “Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name”(Psalm 100:4).
Hope to see you in church this Sunday…and I pray you have a happy and blessed weekend!
