Does God want us to be happy?

Mark Roberts makes a good case for use of the word "happy" instead of "blessed" in the beautitudes of Matthew's Gospel.

As long as we keep in mind the deeper sense of happiness implied in Scripture, it seems quite clear to me that God does want us to be happy. But, having said this, I fear I might have opened Pandora’s box. I’ll explain why in my next post.

The articles are well worth looking at. I find Dr. Roberts's latest post particularly interesting, as I ran across his article about fifteen seconds after posting a comment at Pruitt Communications saying, "God does not necessarily want us to be happy."
