Not in Unbelief

Voltaire was an infidel of the most pronounced type; he wrote - "I wish I had never been born."

Not in Pleasure

Lord Byron lived a life of pleasure and wrote - "The worm, the canker, and the grief are mine alone."

Not in Money

Jay Gould, the American millionaire, had plenty of money. When dying, he said - "I suppose I am the

most miserable man on earth."

Not in Position and Fame

Lord Beaconsfield enjoyed more than his share of both, and wrote - "Youth is a mistake; manhood a struggle; old age, a regret."

Not in Military Glory

Alexander the Great conquered the known world in his day. Then, he wept in his tent and said -

"There are no more worlds to conquer."

Where, then, is Happiness found?

The answer is CHRIST ALONE

"My soul shall be joyful in the Lord: it shall rejoice in His salvation" - Psalm 35:9

Jesus said - "For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?" -Matt. 16:26
