Opening Verses: Mark 12:28-30

Many people have never fully paid attention to their emotions.
Emotions are a very vital part of your being.

You will never really maximize your life without gaining full mastery of your emotions.

Jesus said we should worship the Lord with our whole being; emotions inclusive.

You can't love without emotions.
The Bible is loaded with teachings on emotions.
Anything you feel is an emotion. Emotion simply put is feeling.
Ephesians 4:26

It is easier to act your way into feeling than to feel your way into acting
Romans 12:15

You have no right to criticize anyone who you have never complimented.

Timothy 2:22
With our emotions, you can't express feelings. There are two extremes to meeting your Emotions.

1) People who live by their emotions.
You were not created to live by your feelings alone, else you become a slave to your feelings.

Living by your feelings is dangerous as will lead to destruction.

2) People who totally ignore their feelings.
They have no emotional intelligence, becoming hazardous to those around them.

The balance is to stay in between both as we all need a bit of both.

Emotion is a powerful fuel, you can achieve anything in life if you can master them.

Facts about Emotions;
1) Emotions are real but not always true.
2) Emotions are real but it's not who you are. Don't confuse the feelings of events with who you are
3) Feelings are real but they are not final; they can change.
Feelings can change.
4) Feelings are real but not always right. 
It is a great accelerator but not great steering control, it is a great servant but not a great master.
5) Feelings are real, let them propel you; feelings is fuel to get to your destination.

You need to get to the stage where your feelings propel you to do the things you need to do.

You need to first have direction so that you can set your affections.

Love the word of God; get to the stage where you love the word of God
