John 13:17 makes us know clearly that we can influence our happiness. We can also deduce that knowledge is a requirement for happiness and this knowledge is from God.

“If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him… Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.”
James 1:5, 17

Getting knowledge too is a choice. There are people who have refused education despite so much persuasion. Most of such people end up as failures and become unhappy for the rest of their lives. It was however their choice. Likewise, some people deliberately follow other gods and this too could be a source of sorrow (Psalm 16:4). As temporal as wealth is when compared with spiritual and eternal blessings, lack of it may cause unhappiness. Even the Bible says “The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender” (Proverbs 22:7)

How can you become happy and remain so? Beloved, it is not enough to have knowledge; we must learn to do (John 13:17).

In John 13:13-17, Jesus taught His disciples a secret of happiness – service to God and humanity. When you serve God and make Him the Lord over all your affairs, you will be happy (Psalm 144:15)

You would also be happy if you know how to get out of poverty in a Godly manner. Act according to Malachi 3:10 which commands us to pay our tithes so windows of heavenly blessings can be open upon the works of your hands.

Beloved, I encourage you to choose happiness today. Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God and the Saviour of the world is the only way to true happiness and eternal life (John 3:16-18).
