You have it. I have it. It’s called emotion.
I hope you already know many of the wonderful sides of emotion, part of what it is to be human.
And I’m sure you’ve felt things you never wanted to feel. Or never knew you could feel.
Have you ever been in a situation where your emotions were leading you more than wisdom? If you’re there right now, you may not even know it!
Hindsight is 20/20 as they say. It’s often only in hindsight that you recognize how your emotions controlled you through a decision process.
But what if you could get on the front end of that? What if you could figure out how to find the voice of wisdom when your emotions are getting the best of you?
Would you want to?

Ask It — Part 5 — Hold My Hand | Andy Stanley
You always have something working against you when making personal decisions: you. Personal decisions are emotional, yet emotionally charged environments aren’t ideal for decision-making. Your emotions make the obvious less obvious. This is why you’re probably better at managing someone else’s money than your own. It’s why you know exactly what your neighbor needs to do about his marriage, but have no clue how to improve your own. It’s why your kids baffle you, while a complete stranger’s just need a good spanking.
When it comes to making decisions, we have a real problem: It’s next to impossible to hear the voice of wisdom when emotions are raging.

Ask It — Part 4 — Edged Out | Andy Stanley
When it comes to temptation and decision-making, we all look for loopholes. When tempted, we look for excuses to tell ourselves yes when we should tell ourselves no. We ask, “Is there anything wrong with this? Is it illegal? Will it hurt anyone?” But it’s a bad idea to assume that if something is not wrong, it’s right. Our decision-making filter shouldn’t be based on what’s permissible, but on what’s wise. In no area is this more important than decisions related to our sexual expression. There’s no area where we’re more prone to self-deception.
