Understanding Emotions For Men:
A Safe Small Group Experience
by Jack Larson, Nancy Higgins, Debbie Connors, Joseph Hobbs, Beverly Keller, Kelly Romine, Margo Theivagt, Lee Tolar, April von Wedel
In the Christian community there is sometimes confusion about the purpose of emotions and their importance to our spiritual growth and maturity. For example, negative emotions may be viewed as sinful, or emotions in general may be regarded as not to be trusted or a sign of weakness. God designed us with emotions, so to become a healthy, mature, spiritual man, you must understand how your emotions affect your thinking and acting. You must also learn how to relate to other people and to God in a healthy way at the emotional level. Our emotions are the direct pipeline to our hearts and the means by which we bond and connect at the most basic and intimate level.
