1 Corinthians 6:12
“All things are lawful for me,” but not all things are helpful. “All things are lawful for me,” but I will not be dominated by anything.”
As we serve our Master (Christ), we should not allow any other to rule over us – even ourselves. We all are still living in the flesh and part of the sinful nature. We commit mistakes, we still commit bad habits, we even have our own weaknesses. Yet, we should not mastered by anything in this world.
What controls you, means you are a slave of it. Even our emotions. Our emotions are the most part that rules over us. We even make the best speech we will regret when we are angry. We make bad choices when we are happy or too sad.
Remember, do not be mastered by your emotions but let our emotions be subject to Christ. We cannot control our emotions but when we ask God to fill us with the Holy spirit, we’ll be able to be on guard against our emotions.
Questions to ponder:
Do i speak a lot when I am mad?
Do i easily get hurt over things that sometimes based on our assumptions?
Do i speak negative words against myself whenever I fail in life?
