There are some who are more logically minded. They typically make their decisions based on facts, evidence, and logic they can understand. There’s another group of people who are more emotional. They make their decisions based on how they feel.

Since the logical person uses facts and evidence, if the facts and evidence change, they can change. It can be a little more difficult for an emotional person because it’s dealing with their feelings. If an experience makes them feel a certain way, they feel justified in responding in certain way.

Sometimes, the more emotional person’s responses don’t make sense to the outsider and appears very knee jerk-ish. Since they’re acting out of their emotions, they’re not trying to appeal to logic. Their decisions and responses typically have negative consequences. They’ll say something they’ll later regret; they’ll do something that will have them in jail, fired from a job, or divorced.

It can be difficult to convince a more emotional person to understand how their feelings are affecting their decisions which is ultimately affecting their lives. But that’s why we have God.

Both the logical and emotional person need to silence their logic and feelings and submit their decisions to God. That’s the only way we can ensure our decisions are sound and will work out in our favor. Trust God, not logic or emotions.

Colossians 3:15 Each one of you is part of the body of Christ, and you were chosen to live together in peace. So let the peace that comes from Christ control your thoughts. And be grateful.
