Leland Maples runs the LOOP’s Ministries (Loved Ones Of Prisoners) and leads a Thursday night bible study held in the Rec Room at Life Change Baptist Church in Odessa Texas.  The Rec Room message on Thursday, April 7, 2011 was entitled “Happiness” and was given by Leland. {C}The Bible’s approach to happiness is somewhat different than man’s.  In scripture we learn in Psalms 144:15; Job 5:17; Proverbs 28:14; John 13:17; Acts 26:2; 1 Peter 3:14, 4:14.

Two examples:

  1. Matthew 20:2-14
  2. Luke 15:25-32

Two ways to be unhappy

  1. Focus on yourself
  2. Focus on others

One way to be happy

  1. John 14:6
