An emoji is a digital icon used to express an idea or emotion. Something basic about core emotions like anger, joy and sadness seems to be easily expressed in graphic shorthand, including frowny faces. My dog’s growl seems to be his own built-in emoji. We might think about our own anger similarly. Paying attention to our emojis and those of others will help us live more fully into who God created us to be.
