STOP AND THINK – When it comes to making decisions, more often than not, you cannot trust your heart. Instead, you need to trust God. (Mike Lee, American pastor)

Quite often we’re told (especially in romantic novels) to just trust our hearts. But the Bible tells us, “The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure” (Jeremiah 17:9). While we shouldn’t ignore our emotions, we must use our God-given reasoning skills, informed by His Word, to make our choices in ways that will enhance our lives and honor God.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. (Proverbs 3:5-6)
