Synopsis

<p>The Bible Study Source series provides a unique audio learning experience. Unlike a traditional audiobook's direct narration of a book's text,&nbsp;How Happiness Happens&nbsp;includes high-quality, live audio sessions from the author that cover this important Bible-based topic. These sessions will reflect the ambiance of the unique recording locations, immersing the listener into the teaching.</p><p>Bestselling author Max Lucado looks at several "one another" statements in the Bible that reveal how the happiest people on earth aren't those who&nbsp;have&nbsp;the most but those who are willing to&nbsp;give&nbsp;the most away. While everyone craves happiness, and everyone benefits from it, the sad reality is that fewer people today are finding it. We have more possessions than ever before, better access to education, and greater advancements in technology and medicine. Yet the majority of us can't find an adequate reason to check the "yes" box on a happiness questionnaire.</p><p>Our culture tries to convince us there is one way to happiness: aspire, acquire, desire, retire. Happiness depends on what we hang in our closet, park in our garage, and deposit in our bank account. It's a path that always fails to deliver. Instead, Jesus provides a better way: "It is better to give than receive" (Acts 22:35 nkjv). Intentional, altruistic acts of service are the most reliable sources of well-being. It is a principle Jesus lived out in his own life. While he was accused of much, he was never described as being grumpy or perpetually somber. Rather, he said, "I came to give life with joy and abundance" (John 10:10 vce).</p><p>God wants to bring joy to the people of this generation, and in his Word, he has given us practical and applicable ways to quarry that joy by giving it away. In this study, group members will look at several key "one another" statements given in the New Testament and discover how to make happiness happen in their lives. They will discover that while the world can be a lonely and disappointing place, they can be God's representatives to bring about a cascade of kindness. While we cannot solve every problem, we can bring a few smiles to a few faces. In this way, we might even initiate a quiet revolution of joy.</p>
