Are blessed people happier?

“Since the things we do determine the character of life, no blessed person can become unhappy, for he will never do those things which are hateful and petty.”  Aristotle

This quote conveys several messages. The first message makes an assumption that your life and character are determined by what you do. The things you do, or don’t do, determines your character of life;  the type of person you are and your outlook on life.

The second and focal point of the quote, further explains that people who are blessed are happy, and as a result, are not full of hate and bitterness and so will not do anything which is hateful or petty in nature.

The third message is that people who do hateful and petty things are unhappy.

  1. Blessed people are happier to me. The reason why I say so because if you pray and truly believe and give your heart to the Lord Jesus Christ he will guide you and take you places you have never been. He will open your eyes. And brighten up your day each and everyday. So pray every chance every second minute and hour and watch how you be showered by his love.
