You might think certain emotions strengthen your relationships with others. This is because building a relationship with someone else would mean becoming emotional with them. However, if emotions lead us away from the truth, and towards falsehood. Then such relationships would be dangerous. In relationships, you must proceed with the truth tightened around your waist as a belt. You love, with truth and justice at all times. God gave us emotions for a reason. And emotions can be useful. But you can never win in the real world if all the relationships in your life are centered around emotional sentiments.
Do not be that person that will break the law, just to avoid confrontation with a loved one. Exodus 23:1-2 (NLT), says, “You must not pass along false rumors. You must not cooperate with evil people by lying on the witness stand. You must not follow the crowd in doing wrong. When you are called to testify in a dispute, do not be swayed by the crowd to twist justice”. You are compromised by your emotions when you cannot maintain an objective view when dealing with loved ones. With truth, in love. Let your spouse, associates, mentors, protégé and friends understand that you value truth over everything else. Including your relationship with them.
You need to break free of any relationship with anyone that centers around emotions as the main driver. It might seem sensible to desire relationships that bring you happiness. And shields you away from sadness, fear and anger. But you should understand that any happiness you cling to, at the expense of the truth, will be more harmful in the long run. At other times, there might be no running away from a sense of loss and sadness. The bottom-line is that you are ready for anything, as long as it is the truth. Demand the truth above emotional support from everyone in your life. You want answers, not a pity party. You are not a baby, you can handle the truth.
