Living Happily in Babylon - Nathan Rages

Jer. 29:4-7 4 “Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, to all the exiles whom I have sent into exile from Jerusalem to Babylon, 5 ‘Build houses and live in them; and plant gardens and eat their produce. 6 ‘Take wives and become the fathers of sons and daughters, and take wives for your sons and give your daughters to husbands, that they may bear sons and daughters; and multiply there and do not decrease. 7 ‘Seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the LORD on its behalf; for in its welfare you will have welfare.’

How to live happily in Babylon:
1. Realize God put you there. 
2. Do all the good you can.
3. Strengthen your family.
4. Pray for your enemies.
5. Submit to government authority.
6. Leave judgment to the Lord.
