Often times we make decisions based on what will bring us happiness rather than those that will bring us satisfaction. When we live our lives for happiness most the time our decisions are based on self. But when we tend to make decisions based on satisfaction many of our choices will be made for those in Christ. You see happiness is temporary. It is affected by circumstance. Satisfaction is eternal and given to us through Jesus Christ. Sometimes when we need to make a difficult decision that we would not want to make its for the goodness of our satisfaction in Christ and not for the temporal happiness on earth. Interestingly enough the more decisions we make for satisfaction actually will increase our experiencing happiness.
