Emotional Baggage – Once bruised, emotions become tender and sensitive. We walk through life picking up emotional ‘bruisings’ – a scratch here, a chip there, and maybe a crack or two. You have said, ‘You hurt my feelings.’ Words and actions by others frequently bruise your emotions. However, sometimes the words and actions of others are like hammers literally smashing your emotions. Then emotions are like pointed and jagged sharp edges piercing and cutting your soul. Has anyone ever said to you, ‘You are emotional?’ For some sick reason, we internalize those emotional times. It hurts every time we think about the event. We handle the emotional scratches and chips okay, but smashed emotions can be devastating to your life.

Emotional Baggage

Scriptures: 2 Samuel 18:33; Psalm 34:18-19; Luke 4:18-19; Psalms 94:12; 1 Samuel 17:28; Luke 10:40; John 4:17-18; Luke 23:34

 Welcome to our fifth and final lesson in the series called BAGGAGE: EVERYBODY HAS SOME. Today we will be talking about EMOTIONAL BAGGAGE. All of us have emotional baggage because all of us have emotions. God gave us emotions. Emotions enable us to enjoy life. Can you imagine life without emotions – without laughing, crying, joy, anger, love, hate, etc? Without emotions, we would be emotionless zombies.

Emotions are like mirrors. They reflect our perspective of life – what we like, what we hate, etc. They also reflect the events that happen to us in life. They are normally strong and tough, that is, until they become injured or bruised. Once bruised, emotions become tender and sensitive. We walk through life picking up emotional “bruisings” – a scratch here, a chip there, and maybe a crack or two. You have said, “You hurt my feelings.” Words and actions by others frequently bruise your emotions. However, sometimes the words and actions of others are like hammers that literally smash your emotions. (sermon notes)
