In this emotional world we live in
we do not have too long until we
personally experience such emotions
as anger, fear, worry, frustration,
Quite often these emotional traits
are labeled sins, and many of us
spend our lives fruitlessly striving
to overcome them.
Perhaps, we would be better off,
both psychologically and spiritually,
if we saw these irrational tendencies
as "signals" rather than sins.
Signals that tell us that we are depend-
ing too much on ourselves, and not
enough on God.
Signals that indicate that we need to
read the Scriptures more, or increase
our private prayer time.
We live in a world of signals. If we
permit them, most signals will let us
know that we need a closer walk
with the Lord.
