Let Your Emotions Be Informed by Knowledge

"If you want to feel deeply, you have to think deeply....but emotion built on emotion is empty.  True emotion  - emotion that is reliable and doesn't lead us astray - is always a response to reality, to truth.  It's only as we study and consider truth about Jesus with our minds that our hearts will be moved by the depth of his greatness and love for us.  When we engage our minds with the doctrine of his person and his work, our emotions are given something to stand on, a reason to worship and revel in the very appropriate feelings of awe and gratefulness and adoration."  ~ Joshua Harris, Dug Down Deep
