Proverbs 5:23, For lack of discipline they will die, led astray by their own great folly.

This week we have been looking at the importance of managing our emotions biblically. Yesterday’s topic covered the need to  manage our emotions because not controlling our emotions allows Satan to devour us.

A second reason to manage our emotions is: How well you manage your emotions determines how successful you will be in life.

Countless studies are now being done that say your EQ is just as important as your IQ in determining your success in life. We all know what an IQ is but often times it’s our EQ, or Emotional Intelligence that determines how successful we are in a certain situation.

The Bible says,  For lack of discipline they will die, led astray by their own great folly. Proverbs 5:23 In other words, if we don’t discipline our emotions they will lead us into folly.

As it relates to our emotions those words “our folly means we overreact in a negative way. We blow up and hurt those we love or we implode and hurt ourselves.

So today, live with a High Emotional IQ, and respond well in every situation. You will be rewarded for it and so will those around you.

Think about it and have blessed day!
