Follow me. Jesus kept it pretty simple. A life better than you ever dreamed of, abundant life.
You know when you are in Disney’s Magic Kingdom. You know! They set the atmosphere.
Jesus said the Kingdom of God is here. His kingdom is different, just like the magic kingdom is different or the kingdom of Saudi Arabia is different.
Jesus teaches about the kingdom of God. He’s the king. He says follow me. Then he does things like teaches to love widows, orphans, the oppressed & the poor, your neighbor, yourself & him.
Love. Receive love from him & give love.
Love God. Love your neighbor, your enemy, your frienemy. Love yourself. Follow me.
We get to choose how we live & who we love. We get to choose if we receive & give love.
We are responsible for our own happiness.
My mom learned this growing up in a children’s home in Germany. I learned growing up with a moody dad. He is responsible for his happiness & I am responsible for mine. I will not let someone else control my happiness. There is ALWAYS something to be thankful for, always.
We are responsible to train our minds & we are able to train our kids minds to choose happy.
I’m not saying there won’t be trials and dark days. I am saying we can find joy, gratitude & something to be happy about every day.
A few lessons on choosing happy:
?Look for the good in everything & everyone.
?find something to be grateful for today & say it.
?sing. Let music lift your soul.
?Seek first, above everything else His Kingdom, His glory.
?Receive love & righteousness of Jesus.
