Say What? How to Be Happy

Jan 14, 2024    Garry Firth

1. What does being happy mean to you? What is it that makes you happy? (vacation, fulfilling job, being with friends, etc)

2. Read Matthew 5:3-12. Which beatitude do you identify with the most right now? How does the blessing attached to it apply to your life? 

3. We heard how true happiness isn’t found in what we have or don’t have. It’s found in knowing what God thinks of you. Do you agree or disagree?

4. Jesus mentions the ‘kingdom of heaven’. We heard how the kingdom of heaven is a spiritual kingdom. It’s where heaven and earth meet. Garry said it’s ‘God’s people, in God’s place, living under God’s rule and blessing’. How would you describe the kingdom of heaven? What is it to you?

5. What else stood out to you from this week’s message?

If you haven’t done so yet, memorize Matthew 5:3-12. If you have and you’re willing, recite it in front of your group or a friend.
