Follow Your Heart?

I learned something interesting at Kairos tonight. Or more truthfully, I was reminded of something I probably already knew but needed to hear again.

The Bible never once says to follow your heart.

What it says is to guard your heart and follow Jesus.

I know in my own experience that while emotions and feelings are important and worthwhile, they can also be misleading and sometimes downright deceitful.

I’ve had plenty of times when I was tired and let my emotions run rampant. I felt like my situation at the time was hopeless. But after a good night’s sleep, my emotions changed.

I’ve learned that emotions and feelings are fickle, but God isn’t. The Bible says that He’s the same yesterday, today, and forever.

I don’t need to follow my heart. I need to guard it and follow Jesus. That’s the beginning of true wisdom.
