    The bible says that the love of money can be injurious, and by getting carried away with the love of money, many have stabbed themselves all over with many pains. It is not the money itself that is harmful, it can benefit us for caring for ourselves and our families. But the LOVE of money that can cause pain. For instance, a family member may be spending all his time working for riches, and not enough time with the family. This can cause friction and unhappiness amongst family members. (1 Timothy 6:10). The love of money can only lead to disappointment, or even crime.

    Forgive Freely
    We are to continue forgiving each other even if someone has a complaint against us. People today, are not so forgiving, and want to get even. But we all make mistakes and need forgiveness. Do we not appreciate someone forgiving us when we do wrong? Our Creator forgives us, we need to forgive also. (Colossians 3:13)

    Comply With God's Standards
    God's commandments are clean, and good for us emotionally, mentally, and physically. (Psalms 19:8) They are a protection for us against drug abuse, sexual misconduct, drunkenness, and viewing pornography. (2 Corinthians 7:1)(Colossians 3:5). The harmful result of these can be crime, poverty, mistrust, families breaking up, mental and emotional problems, disease, and even death. On the other hand, those who follow God's standards of being morally clean, have self-respect, secure friendships, and inner peace. (Isaiah 48:17)

    Show Unselfish Love
    1 Corinthians 8:1 tells us that love builds us up. What would our life be like without love? In chapter 13 verses 4-8 it tells us love is patient and kind. It unselfishly looks out for the welfare of others, and does not easily become offended. As parents, it means showing love to our children, and making sure we teach them bible based principles. Deuteronomy 6:6,7

    Be Conscious of Your Spiritual Need
    The bible tells us we will be happy if we are aware of our spiritual needs. (Matthew 5:3). Millions of people in the world are finding answers to many questions they have wondered. What is the purpose of life? Is there a Creator? What happens at death? What does the future hold for us? Our Creator wants us to be happy, and live forever on this earth, the way it was originally meant to be. (Psalms 37:29). He promises us no more sickness. (Isaiah 33:24) No more crime. (Psalms 37:10-11) No more death. (Revelation 21:3-4) An abundance of food for all. (Isaiah 25:6). This is something to be happy about! Our Creator wants us to be happy and successful forever. We need to take in knowledge of his word, and if we put forth the effort to put what we learn into action, we can be happy. (John 17:3).
