What makes people happy around the capitol? Winning elections? Parties gaining and maintaining control of the Senate or House? Rising to positions of leadership and influence? The passing of legislation? The success of lobbying efforts for organizations or issues? Everyone is looking for happiness in their work in the statehouse as well as in the rest of our lives. But true happiness cannot be found in any of these things. At times we’ll fail in reaching these goals. Even if such things are achieved, they will not bring true happiness. In the Beatitudes, Jesus’ introduction to His Sermon on the Mount, Jesus declares how each of us can find true happiness, both in the capitol and in the rest of our lives.

This is the topic of this week's Bible study in the West Virginia statehouse, "Finding True Happiness in the Capitol". Please pray that many will find the true joy and happiness that only comes through faith in Christ.
