CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Talking to my daughter the other day… I forget what it was we were even referring to, but I playfully told her she was being lazy. She said, “No, I was being tired!” I told her, “Tired is a feeling, lazy is a choice.” There’s often a poor choice that goes along easily with what we’re feeling at any time. As guys, we have a tendency to suppress feelings and try to ignore them as we make choices. However, some time ago I took a class on “Emotional Intelligence”. At the time, I thought it was kind of stupid because we took a lot of time looking at emotions, then at the end we went into how making decisions based on emotions was a bad thing. I thought, “Hey, of course. Why did we spend all that time on emotions when we’re supposed to just ignore them like I was already trying to do.” It wasn’t until later that I realized the subtle difference between trying to ignore emotions and recognizing those emotions and realizing in the moment how they are trying to affect your decision making. As Eph. 4:26 puts it, you can be angry (and recognize that you are), but choose to sin not.
