Merry Christmas to all in Southern California and around the world! I wanted to share with you an article my colleague, Keith Wommack, wrote about a very special type of gift you can give and receive that has health benefits – the kiss!
Most kisses are motivated by love, and research shows that it is actually love that promotes health. It is love, not the kiss, which leads to healthy outcomes.
Perhaps, the kiss could be considered a symbol, an act that reminds us of the love that is truly medicinal. Danny Deza in a Foxnews.com article recently wrote, “Love does indeed impact our bodies in measurable ways. You feel different and are different.”
If love changes bodies, this medicine’s ingredient is more than human emotion. It must be something divine, spiritual, for love cannot be squeezed from a flower or synthetically created.
At the Christmas season, love motivates us to give gifts. Christians do this in honor of God’s gift to mankind, the gift of His son Jesus. They believe Jesus’ compassionate example set the standard for what love is and can accomplish. The spirit of Christ that Jesus so naturally reflected heals.
Maybe you have experienced love’s healing benefits. I have, several times.
