"Happy are ye if ye do them"

The whole world is seeking for happiness; and each individual has his own concept of what that happiness includes, and of what he feels it necessary to do in order to obtain it. In the book of John it is recorded that after Jesus had admonished his disciples, shortly before his crucifixion, he said to them, "If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them." Here is given an unfailing rule for finding true happiness. We may gain it by studying the teachings and works of our Master, and by eagerly and faithfully striving to emulate them.

Throughout Jesus' ministry his every thought and act was certainly motivated by an unselfed desire to heal and save others by showing them the way of salvation, and from his words, "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you," we may assume that he was ever conscious of peace and joy.
