Has anyone ever suggested to you that you should just follow your heart? Or maybe you think it is wise for one to be led by the heart instead of the mind?

I love Jeremiah 17:9 which says, “The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?” I often ask people, “What are you willing to die for?” Unfortunately some people get into life long arguments over opinions or beliefs which are both tied to one’s emotions. Convictions, on the other hand, are more than ideas or feelings and are based on strong values. Therefore, don’t you think it is wiser to make choices on one’s convictions instead of just following our heart which can actually deceive us?

What about you? Can you see moments in your life where, thank God, you made a choice not because it felt good but instead you followed your strong moral compass? Here’s to making sure we aren’t just following the cultural norms or focusing on what’s best only for ourselves but instead Glorify God in all that we do even if it’s the harder path to follow. HOOYAH!
