Choice? If only ...

 
A discussion the other day: What if you could eliminate one characteristic out of human nature, which one would it be?

Someone suggested anger. Someone else said envy … jealousy, hatred, prejudice, fear … and so on.

What if this were possible; what would you get as a result?

A robot. Someone pre-programmed by you with whatever emotions you feel should stay in and which ones taken out.

But God decided differently.

He gave us all these emotions, both positive and negative ones, and with them He gave us a responsibility.

The responsibility to keep them under control and to use them properly.

Even some negative emotions have a purpose if controlled properly and used in the right circumstances. If we didn’t have anger we would not be so disposed to stand up against evil. Fear keeps us from being foolhardy and reckless at times.

So there you have it: negative and positive emotions and a responsibility to control them.

Phew … I’m suddenly tired with all these responsibilities!

  2. Keeping them all under control occasionally leads to the lid being blown, Victor.

    1. Agreed Lulu. Unless you are perfect, like I am. I NEVER lose control of my emotions. Always calm, cool and collected.

      Oh Lord, it's hard to be humble.
      when I'm perfect in every way.
      I can't wait to look in the mirror
      cause I get better looking each day.

      God bless you, Lulu.

    1. The responsibilities certainly do weigh me down, Sparky. I think being Christian is difficult.

      God bless you my friend.

  5. Brilliant. I am going to keep a link to this post next time I am trying to explain to someone why God "allows" people to act badly. Life would just be easier if everyone read your blog every day! God Bless you.

  6. Hi Victor. Visiting from Kim Adams Morgan's blog... This is profound. Made me think... I am more of a black and white, cut and dried person. I need to expand my thought processes. But yes, this responsibility sure does tire one out. Have a good day.

    1. Hello Laurie,

      It's so nice to see you visiting here. Thank you. We hope you can visit again.

      It's a pity we can't find your Blog to visit you there.

      God gave us the freedom of choice, and at the same time He gave us the responsibility to use our emotions, whether good ones or bad, for the good of mankind.

      God bless you.
