Happiness

The question was simple, “What does God want for us?” The old man answered, “God wants us to be happy.” The young man looked at the pavement, then at the sky, then at the old man. “That’s it? God’s gonna make me happy?” The old man looked at the pavement, then at the sky, and answered “God wants us to work for the happiness of others. In that work we will find our own happiness.” The young man looked at the pavement, then at the sky, then at the old man and said, “You may be right. You just might.”
