12-27-15. Philippians 2:19-30. In this text we see that happiness is not a matter of luck, it’s a quality you can learn. In this passage Paul shares four choices that Timothy and Epaphroditus made that led to their happiness. When we build these character traits into our lives it will increase, not only our happiness but the happiness of those around us. The first has to do with developing a genuine interest in others. The second, being a person that others can trust.
