Sometimes we feel envy to those people who have been a very rich and famous but we have no idea that they are not happy despite of having everything. Some people who seem to have nothing are happy.
One of our purposes in life is to become happy. God implemented us conscience for us to feel guilty when we have done something wrong. Once we feel guilty, we will realize that we did hurt other that we have offended others and we will get to deal with this feeling. Dealing with our guilt will lead us in seeking peace and admitting our sins. We will surely realize how to make peace with the person we get hurt especially with God. We will find way to reconcile with that person and with God. Through this, we will find peace; peace of mind and peace in our heart, asking for forgiveness and we all know that it brings joy. Because of this, we will reach our goal to become happy through God’s forgiveness. His perfect love is that He has forgiven us.
