Emotion alone can be as empty as cotton candy. Logic alone can be clinical, a tasteless meal of vitamin pills. Together, they are a full course meal. (Craig Brain Larson, author)

Remember eating cotton candy at the county fair? It was tasty but soon gone. Emotions are a lot like that. We surely cannot live on emotion alone. On the other hand, simple reasoning can be tedious and unfeeling. But, as Larson suggests, together in proper balance, the two can be fulfilling and productive.

God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise . . . the weak things of the world to shame the strong. (1 Corinthians 1:27).
