The disconnect between emotional maturity and spiritual maturity.

1 Thessalonians 5:23-24

Box of Emotions

  • The emotions you haven’t unpacked have great control over you.
  • We take emotions out into the light, get assistance from the Lord and wise people in understanding them, and then putting them back in our box in a far “tamer” and healthy way.
  • We don’t unpack the box because:
    • Activity-based culture not a relationship-based culture
    • Family’s “permissible emotions”

What do we do with the unpacked emotions in the box?

  • The emotions you don’t understand are transferred to the “permissible ones”.

Galatians 5:22-23

1 Thessalonians 5:23-24
