How Happiness Happens / Max Lucado book review


Max never disappoint you. He is right into point with a soft loving language. Easy read; powerful impact. I love it. This man is God’s lip on the earth. He lined up the 10 practical principles for making happiness happen (pg 10 ) :

1- Encourage one another ( 1 Thess. 5: 11)

2- Bear with one another ( Eph. 4 : 2)

3- Regards one another as more important (Phil. 2: 4)

4- Greet one another (Rom. 16:16)

5- Pray for one another(James 5 : 16)

6- Serve one another (Gal. 5:13)

7- Accept one another (Rom. 15:7)

8- Admonish one another (Col. 3:16)

9- Forgive one another (Eph. 4:32)

10- Love one another (1 John 3: 11)

Actually the whole book goes into these 10 principles. If you want to cuddle the happiness balloon, than here you go , you do well when you truly do the above. Although no one will be able to easily pass the exam but with a little bit practice and perseverance you can do it.

Max opens the doors of this 10 and gives a glimpse of  it in the chapters. But , eventually this is you and me make the ball kick!

The last pages of the book his wife Andrea Lucado prepared some questions for each chapter:

Of those 10 ” one another” above verses, which one do you believe you do best? how?

Which one do you most need to work on?

Max writes in chapter 1 which is truly true: 

” Happiness depends on what you hang in your closet, park in your garage,mount on your trophy wall, deposit in your bank account, experience in your bedroom , wear on your wedding finger, or serve at your dining table. Happiness happens when you lose the weight , get the date, find the mate, or discover your fate. It’s wide, this front door to happiness.

YET for all its promise it fails to deliver. “

Get the book and read it and it may change your view of the real happiness!
