Sermon Illustrations: Happiness

An old dog was watching a puppy chasing its tail and asked, "Why are you chasing your tail?" The puppy said, "I have mastered philosophy, and I have solved the problems of the universe which no dog has ever before been able to solve. I've learned that the best thing for a dog is happiness, and that happiness is in my tail. Therefore I am chasing it, and when I catch it I shall have it." "My son," said the old dog, "I too have considered the problems of the universe in my weak way, and have formed some opinions. I have also judged that happiness is a fine thing for a dog, and that happiness is in my tail. But I've noticed that when I chase it, it just keeps running away from me; but when I go about my business. It follows me wherever I go."
