3 Bible Tips: Emotions
1. Jesus Christ showed a range of proper emotions.
"Jesus wept" (John 11:35; see also Mark 3:5, anger; Mark 1:41, compassion; John 15:11, joy).
2. Our emotions can be an important part of needed changes.
"For observe this very thing, that you sorrowed in a godly manner: What diligence it produced in you, what clearing of yourselves, what indignation, what fear, what vehement desire, what zeal, what vindication! In all things you proved yourselves to be clear in this matter" (2 Corinthians 7:11).
3. But our emotions must be under control.
"A fool vents all his feelings, but a wise man holds them back" (Proverbs 29:11).
