The Pursuit of Happiness
Scripture declares King Solomon "greater than all kings of
the earth in riches and wisdom."
Somewhere along the lines, Solomon forgot the divine source
of his prosperity. A great emptiness came into his life as he turned
away from the Lord, and he embarked on a pursuit of happiness
to fill the spiritual void. Out of Solomon's frantic and fruitless search
comes a compelling message for us: the message of the "apes and
peacocks." The peacock with his strutting finery and the ape with his
power represent every amusement, every diversion, every possible
attempt to find happiness apart from the plan of God. As Solomon
eventually discovered only through fellowship with God and the pursuit
of His Word can the believer attain stability, contentment of soul, and a
true and enduring happiness.

He is right beside me.
