Receive instruction in wise dealing and the discipline of wise thoughtfulness, righteousness, justice, and integrity. –Proverbs 1:3 Moods can bring strange impulses that we dare not heed. When we get moody, we want to do weird things, or neglect our responsibilities.
“I don’t feel like doing anything today. I am in a bad mood. Just leave me alone.”
Disciplined people submit their emotions to wisdom. They say, “These are my feelings, but I don’t live by my feelings. I may have moods, but they don’t dictate my actions. I am going to do exactly what I would do if I felt better.” You will enjoy your day more when you discipline yourself to do what you believe, instead of what you feel.
