Dr. Les Parrott - When We Love Like Jesus We Are Lifted Outside Ourselves

Dr. Les Parrott: “God designed us to have a driving desire for happiness. It’s bred in our bones. It’s in our DNA. God wants us happy.”

Numerous studies find that the ability to practice love in our daily relationships is the defining mark of the happiest of human beings. When people engage in self-giving love by doing something extraordinarily positive, they use higher-level brain functions and set off a series of neurochemical reactions that shower their system in positive emotions.

Loving Like Jesus Is More Obtainable Than You Might Imagine

The great hindrance to true enjoyment is our willingness to settle for pitiful pleasures. We become accustomed to such meager, short-lived pleasures that we miss out on the deepest enjoyment of all. Some people think that loving like Jesus means sacrificing happiness. They think it’s all about self-denial.  They think it will squash joy.

I’m optimistic about you and me. I believe we can both become better at loving like Jesus. Why? Because this love isn’t illusive. It isn’t pie-in-the-sky. It isn’t out of reach or relegated to untouchable saints. It’s real. Jesus gives us practical steps to love in extraordinary ways.
