STOP AND THINK – When feelings become more important than faith, people will become more important, and God will become less important. (Edward T. Welch, theologian, author)

Society more and more seems to live by feelings. “If it feels good, do it,” some would say. But feelings are fleeting. Sometimes, it’s almost day-by-day. Other times, our emotions change because of growth, new relationships, or special events. Author Jerry Bridges’ counsel is wise, “Our emotions must become subservient to the truth.”

Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth (1 John 3:18).
