Summary: Great outdoor sermon for kids about true happiness. Duck Dynasty style. You will need a BB gun and some balloons.

Everyone knows the Robertson family

• Phil & Kaye

• Si

• Willie and Korie

• Jase and Missy

• Jep and Jessica

• Mountain man, Justin Martin, and John Godwin

Who is your favorite character on the show?

• I didn’t even say Sadie…lol

What’s your favorite quote from the show?

• Miss Kaye-eating squirrel brains is where you get your smarts

• Phil-when the Almighty made women, He made some strange creatures

• Si- your beard so fat, even Dora cant explore it

• Jase- there are 2 kinds of people without beards, boys and women- I am neither

My favorite Duck Dynasty phrase is HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY! But why are the Robertsons so Happy?

Is it because they are rich?

1 Timothy 6:17-19 Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.

They are blessed not because they have money, but because they give

what happens when if they begin to place their happiness in riches???

• Shoots balloon! That’s how fast it can get shot down

Could they be happy because of all the toys they have?

• Big trucks- break down

• 4 wheelers- get stolen

• Big homes- burn down

• Lots of GUNS- get confiscated

So what happens when we place our trust in these things?

• Shoots balloon! That’s how fast it can get shot down

Proverbs 11:28 He who trusts in his riches will fall, but the righteous will flourish like the green leaf.

Could they be happy because they are so popular?

• Phil didn’t seek the spotlight, he quit football to provide for his family and his position was then handed to Hall of Famer Terry Bradshaw

• His popularity came as being known as the Billy Graham of Duck Hunting

• Even with his tremendous influence, he was attacked by the media and kicked off the show for standing for his Biblical values.

Matthew 6:33 seek first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

What would have happened if his Happiness were a result of his relationship with Jesus but because of his popularity?

• Shoots balloon! That’s how fast it can get shot down

Could their happiness be because they have such an awesome family?

• Every family has a mother and a father

• They got that crazy uncle who makes everyone laugh

• They all have a bunch of cousins to play with

• They sit down together and have family meals

• They all go to church together


The reason this family is so close and so happy is because of this!

• Stands up CROSS- nobody can shoot this down!

Romans 8:35-39 who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written, “For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

The enemy will still do everything in his power to get in between you and the cross and steal your happiness

• Rebellion against parents

• Keep you out of church

• Worries

• Fears

• Doubts

But you got to cut this stuff loose and place your trust in God!

John 10:10 the thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

IN CLOSING: Are you happy? Is your joy from the Lord or is it in the things you own? Things of this world will perish, but what is done for God lasts 4ever!

Matthew 16:24-26 -If any man will come after me let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
