Disappointment or Misplaced Affection?

When we feel overwhelmed with disappointment it often reveals something that has become too important.  It may be something as insignificant as the loss of a ball game.  When we find that those things have the power to determine who we are and what kind of day we have, it very well may be evidence that something is more important than it should be.  Of course some level of disappointment and frustration can be natural.  But if you find that you are excessively disappointed and frustration can be natural.  But if you find that you are excessively disappointed or over-frustrated it’s an indication of what might be competing  for affection that is to be Christ’s alone.
