LSOF: Logical vs. Emotional

 

Someone close to me this week had some very profound words which I am SURE were straight from the heart of God.

She told me that when we allow our emotions to be in control, if even for a short while…we are on the road to distruction. 

We cannot simply rely on what we believe in our hearts. 
This is why people fall in and out of faith so easily…the ” EMOTIONAL” rollercoaster.
Our hearts purely are just an ” emotional sea” filled with waves of things we ” FEEL”.

It takes us all the way back to the beginning of Genesis, Folks.

Genesis 6:5
The LORD saw how great man’s wickedness on the earth had become, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time.

I love this verse in Psalm 26:2
” Test me O Lord, and try me, examine my heart and mind.”

God loves us enough to not just look into our hearts, but to EXAMINE every part of it.

I have often found myself saying aloud this week with a certain situation that is just emotional in itself. ” Logical not emotional”
and it honestly, has helped me keep my cool.

The logical mind can find peace, where the emotional mind breeds chaos.

Say you got in an argument with someone, regardless of the situation.
There was no right or wrong from either side, each person felt they had a valid reason to react the way they did.

How did you react?

Emotionally:

If its a friend, did you stop talking to them?
If its a co-worker, do you avoid working with them?
If its a family member, do you treat them fairly?
If its a teacher, do you lose respect?
If its a church member, do you stop attending? Or
sitting by them?

Whatever the answer to the question may be. Try to remember that asking the same questions, logically, do you believe the answer you gave would change?

If its a friend, did you stop talking to them?
If its a co-worker, do you avoid working with them?
If its a family member, do you treat them fairly?
If its a teacher, do you lose respect?
If its a church member, do you stop attending? Or
sitting by them?

Think hard before you react. What is controlling the conversation,
the peace of God, or the chaos of man?
