Would you have been happy in paradise?


Here’s a little jewel from Matthew Henry on marriage, happiness, and contentment.

Matthew Henry said it well when he said:


“He that has a good God, a good heart, and a good wife, to converse with, and yet complains . . . would not have been easy and content in paradise;”


If a man has a good relationship with God and a pleasant fellowship with his family, what more is there to have? If we need more than these, then, as Mr. Henry shows us, we would not have been happy in God’s garden.

As a happily married man with beautiful children and the hope of Heaven, there is nothing I will receive tomorrow that will make me happier than I am today. That being the case, then these areas are where my priorities should lie.
