How Can I Live a Good Life According to the Bible?

How can I live a good life?

Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.  Proverbs 4:7

What must I do in this world to gain wisdom?

A wise man will hear and increase in learning, And a man of understanding will acquire wise counsel Proverbs 1:5

Who shall be considered wise counsel?
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; Fools despise wisdom and instruction.  Proverbs 1:7

Interesting.  So, how can I learn more about the Lord??

Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.  John 14:6

How do I learn to walk with Jesus?

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
2 Timothy 3: 16-17

Scripture, as in the Bible? 

Yes, the Bible.  The book that is largely being forgotten by the world, but is still relevant today as the day it was written.  Maybe even more so.

Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.  Revelation 1:3

If there was ever a time in which to read the Bible, to step away from the things of the world, the politics, turmoil, violence, and all the other things that war against the soul, this is the very time to search diligently.

Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman who needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.  2 Timothy 2:15

How can I find happiness in this world?  

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.  Phillippians 4:8
So ignore the negative?  What is pure in this world?

Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.  Proverbs 30:5


Amen
