From a Child Prospective By Mackenzie Ware, 11 years old. ( This is what she received from Sunday message in her own words.
Are We Happy In The Lord?
Are you happy with what the Lord does for you? You should be because he does so much. It not a sin to be happy, so you should ever be sad. We won’t be alive forever so why waste it on being sad because you won’t have feelings when your dead.
It is not a sin to be happy (that’s crazy). We all deserve to be happy at any time, especially if you are a Christian. We, as Christans have no reason to not be happy. God woke us up this morning, he gave us money to get food, we traveled safely throughout the day, we got home safely, and we got to go to sleep without any disturbance. If you know someone who is always sad, won’t ever smile, that is just depressed, well they don’t have to be like that. You can try to cheer them up, that person is possibly just lonely, and just needs a friend. You are a person who can give that person a friend, and not only will it make them happy, but it will makes you happy. Try helping out someone then ask yourself ,” am I happy.”
Everyone reading this is alive I think. We all are not going to be alive forever, so we shouldn’t waste it on the bad things in life. Stealing, killing, drugs are all a waste of time because the all lead you to the same place…jail, which is a waste of time because if you didn’t do all that stuff you could spend your time being happy. When you do everything you are spupposed to do in the end you be even more happy then ever before. Let’s all be happy and thankful.
We need to be happy in the Lord for he does everything for us and we have to repay him. If you waste your life being sad you won’t live your life to the fullest, and that is not a life you want to have lived.Are
