I saw the movie “Inside Out” a while ago with my grand kids. And the movie was very good and had an awesome message. People often try to live a balanced, productive life by using one emotion, but as proved in the movie AND in real life, we in fact need ALL of our emotions. HOWEVER, we need to have a BALANCE. You cannot go through life running on only one emotion. If you are ALWAYS HAPPY and have no trials or no drama how do you grow. Mistakes and bad situations help us to learn and grow. So you need a balance of all your emotions. You need to understand that you cannot let one emotion run your life. You cannot be JOYFUL all the time, or SAD, FEARFUL, ANGRY, or DISGUSTED, all the time. YOU NEED BALANCE!
Proverbs 29:11 says “A fool vents all his feelings, But a wise man holds them back”. Your feelings will cause you to blindly run with an emotion not considering where you end up, how you got there, OR WHO you injured in your wake. However, Wisdom will cause you to consider your feelings, the cause and effect of them, the root of the problem, and possible resolutions. In other words WISDOM WILL KEEP THOSE FEELINGS/EMOTIONS IN CHECK!!
As humans we transform our feelings and emotions into some sort of action. Wisdom will help us to make sure those actions are the CORRECT ACTIONS.
