Head and Heart

The heart never takes the place of the head; but it can, and should, obey it. (C. S. Lewis, late British scholar)

Hallmark and other TV networks often play romantic films that some call “chick flicks.” (Although men are known to watch them, too.) The episodes almost always conclude with a conflict between real life and romance. The common advice is “follow your heart.” We would do well to consider Lewis’ counsel, however. Heart and mind need to be in balance with reality.

[God’s] peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:7).
