That’s Just How I Feel (Romans 12:2)

July 3, 2020

I can’t help it, Ron. That’s just how I feel.

As a counselor I’ve heard those words and that excuse countless times. But according to the Bible, what we think should determine how we act. Be transformed by the renewal of your mind, says Romans 12:2, then you’ll know what is good, acceptable, and perfect. What informs our thinking is God’s wisdom. Mistreating someone who hurts you, engaging in pornography, or bad mouthing family members are driven by feelings. Not God's truth. Want a stronger family? Let God’s wisdom determine how you act.
