Be Happy:The Pursuit of Happiness-Philippians 3:1-2, 13-14, 17; Proverbs 13:20 (ESV)
Finally, my brothers, rejoice in the Lord! It is no trouble for me to write the same things to you again, and it is a safeguard for you.
Philippians 3:1 ESV
1) Make sure you’re heading in the right direction
Watch out for those dogs, those men who do evil, those mutilators of the flesh.
Philippians 3:2 ESV
2) Close the door on the past
But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 3:13-14 ESV
3) Get with the in-crowd
Join with others in following my example, brothers, and take note of those who live according to the pattern we gave you.

He who talks with the wise grows wise, but a companion of fools suffers harm.
