Someone asked me if money can buy happiness? My answer, absolutely not, but it is definetly debatable. Why you may ask? Well the poor or destitute believe it can for the main reason that it would enable them to purchase the things they crave as well as do the things only people with money can do.
The affluent, rich and famous tell us a different story and paints a different picture. Keep in mind that if they were so happy there would be no divorces, cheating or scandals for the paparazzi to write about or take pictures of. Also realize that these people buy it all, do it all but interestingly enough they are still unhappy which tells us what? Money does not buy happiness.
Happiness is believed to mean a person who is contented in all aspects of their life like spiritually, physically and emotionally. Now, if you base happiness on affordability then it is only a temporary gratification of your fleshly desires which leads to physical and eternal death. Money will never buy permanent happiness, our happiness was already paid for by Jesus Christ and all you need to do is to accept and believe in Him.
It is written that:
” ‘No eye have seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man ( no mind conceived) the things God has prepared for those who love Him’. But God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. For what man aknoweth the things of a man, save(except) the spirit of man which is in him? Even so the things of God bknoweth no man, cbut the dSpirit of God. (v.12)Now we have received, not the aspirit of the world, but the Spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.”
God has revealed these things to true Christians by His Holy Spirit for the spirit searches all things even the deep things of God….We, the true Christians, have not received the spirit of the world only the Spirit of God which is the Holy Spirit; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God ( 1 Corinthians 2:9-12).
True happiness guarantees peace of mind, it is written,”He (God) will keep you in perfect peace, if your mind is occupied with Him”(Isaiah 26:3). You can only find true happiness in God.
