Psalm 106:3: Happy are those who act with justice and always do what is right!
We don't often think about the fact that acting with justice and righteousness will actually bring us happiness, but it does! This word for "happy" in Hebrew is "esher" and it denotes a sense of a deep happiness and sense of blessedness. One feels "esher" at the announcement of good news. This is true happiness. And what better news could there be than to know in our hearts and souls that we acted justly for others and did what we knew to be right? It is one of the wonders of human life that in serving others we ultimately benefit ourselves. Isn't God's way the best way? And the happiest?
