The Heart

What I believe in my heart must make sense in my mind.

We seem to be a society of romantics. Hallmark movies repeatedly offer advice to people who are struggling with decisions about their love life. “Follow your heart” is the most common counsel. Lovers give up job security for the hope to live happily ever after. Genuine love is important, of course, but better advice might be to direct your heart.

Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life. (Proverbs 4:23)
