Here’s Part 2:
“Whatever you do, don’t make an emotional decision!” How many times have you heard that advice? It sounds wise. After all, how many stories do we know of people who followed their emotions right off a cliff? We know of people who lost everything following anger or lust or greed. In a moment, emotions spike with intensity and you act, often in a ways that are short-sighted, sometimes even self-destructive.
In an effort to protect people from making life-altering bad decisions, parents, teachers, pastors and counselors, have given this advice that has become “common sense.” At best the emotion clouds the issue. At worst, it will lead you in the wrong decision. And if you’re a Christian, it’s sure to lead you into sin.
Turns out none of this is true.
