Why Can What I Know To Be Wrong Feel So Right?

September 21, 2016

“Sexual addiction, compulsive under- and overeating, self-protection against further rejection, grudge-holding that seems justified: Why can what I know to be wrong feel so right? The answer? I long to feel what I was created to feel more than I want to be who I was created to be. Feelings then trump truth as the motivation for the choices I make.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, A Different Kind of Happiness, Page 175

Questions for Reflection:
• Think of a time today when feeling what you were created to feel was more important to you than being the person you are created to be.
• What was the cost of sacrificing truth to immediately experience a desired feeling?
• What companionship with Christ is available to you when you are feeling the weight of all that remains unresolved in your life?
• Ask the Holy Spirit to give you hope about the kind of person God is creating you to be as you yield to Him.
