God's Word + your brain = JOY




What if God created our brains with the ability to overcome these feelings?


When you look forward to something, your brain releases the chemical dopamine. It could be a soldier looking forward to coming home to see his family after serving for months overseas. But it could also be an adulterer looking forward to seeing his mistress. This part of the brain doesn't differentiate between right and wrong… it just knows you are looking forward to the 'reward.'
