Jason Hartman talks with Rabbi Evan Moffic, author of The Happiness Prayer: Ancient Jewish Wisdom for the Best Way to Live Today. The two discuss why the bible actually promotes wealth (and what we should DO with that wealth), as well as what gives people true happiness.
[3:30] Human beings are creators, and if you don’t get to create you don’t usually feel fulfilled
[6:03] Pleasure and happiness are two completely different things
[10:51] Plant a tree whose shade you will never sit under
[13:38] When you’re feeling sad the best thing you can do is do something nice for someone else
[17:23] The bible is a pro-wealth product that teaches us to use our wealth to serve others
