**Please don't participate if you are going to get offended or get your feelings hurt. Just walk on by. I am really curious to hear what others think and don't want this thread shut down. Play nice. ***I am coming to this from a Judeo-Christian perspective. If that is not your belief system that is your choice. You are still welcome to share your thoughts. Just don't preach (and I won't either. ) So this came out of a conversation with a friend. Do you think God cares if we are happy? I can't find any Scripture that says that He does care about that. I can find where He cares if we believe, if we have faith, if we are obedient, if we are kind to others, etc. I can't find anything that says our happiness is an issue for Him. So what do you think? If you have a Scripture reference, please share it. Discuss amongst yourselves.
