Such a simple phrase – “they have gone contrary to the nature of God; therefore, they are in a state contrary to the nature of happiness” – but one so profound and so true. No matter what is happening in our external environment, the one measure of our happiness is living in tune with the Lord.
Living out of tune with the Lord, we may find things that can dull our pain and blind our hearts. This, especially when paired with excitement, may be mistaken for happiness. But ultimately it is not – it is a return to the state of nature and accepting the bonds of iniquity.
