The following statement will truly make you ponder, “Allow wisdom to rise above emotion.” Wow, there is so much packed into that one simple statement. But when you read it and study it, how simple is it? We are human and we will have emotions, the question is how we deal with them. Reacting to your emotions does not bring about the righteous life that God desires. We may not be able to do anything about how we feel, but we can do a lot about how we act. In other words, we need to learn how to respond to life instead of reacting to it. So the next time you feel like your emotions are controlling you, ask God for help. When we can overcome our emotions, then and only then can we start living the righteous life that God desires.
* A fool gives full vent to his anger, but a wise man keeps himself under control. Proverbs 29:11.
