Connection Between Loving Others And Finding Happiness

May 31, 2017

“Nothing in today’s world, including our church world, has been more lamentably treated as fiction, if it is even considered, than the God-arranged connection between loving others and finding happiness. If Jesus is our model, then loving others sacrificially generates a kind of happiness, an awareness of destiny fulfilled, that remains alive even when life is unjustly difficult and our hearts feel empty and alone.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, A Different Kind of Happiness, Page 21

Questions for Reflection:
• If you were asked what would make you happy, would your response typically be: “It would make me really happy to love more sacrificially”?
• What level of internal resistance do you experience when you consider the link between your happiness and the love that you offer others?
• Take some time today to talk with God about this connection between happiness and loving as Jesus does.
