Some people seem to believe emotions are “bad” and should not be shown. Others, on the other hand, wear their emotions on their sleeve. So which is better? Are we to downplay our emotions so they don’t lead us into making a poor decision? Or do we embrace our emotions so that we can feel alive, even if those emotions hurt those around us?
In this third message in the “Self Edition” of The Everyday Gospel series, Pastor Erin Bird walks us through a passage out of 2 Corinthians 2, showing us that while our emotions are natural and should be expressed, they are not to rule us. Rather, our emotions should be corrected by the Gospel and move us toward God.
