It's what we all long for, what all human beings seek in our jobs, our relationships, our activities. We try so hard to be happy, and all too often we end up empty and unsatisfied.
Why? Because, writes Billy Graham in this classic book, we are looking for happiness in all the wrong places.
We haven't learned the secret Jesus taught in the Beatitudes - that true, lasting happiness simply isn't found by seeking it directly. Happiness is a by-product, a bonus that comes when we seek what is really important. And the things that will bring us the satisfaction we long for are not necessarily what the world considers meaningful.
