Despite the common pursuit of happiness, we live in an incredibly anxious society. Philippians 4:4-9 gives insight into two questions we may be asking as we navigate this tension we feel as we live in an anxious world that seeks happiness:
Where does joy come from?
- Joy does not come from circumstances
- Joy does not come from denying other emotions
- Joy comes from God’s presence
How can we return to joy when we feel anxious?
- Fill your mind with good things
- Follow godly models
