Thing is, is that Biblical?
I mean it sounds all warm and fluffy - you know, be true to your own feelings. The idea of following your heart brings up the notion of knowing what you want and following your true desires.
But is it Biblical?
What does the Bible say about our heart?
Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
This doesn't sound like something that God wants us following, does it?
I can never understand why Christians would repeat this phrase when God so clearly declares our hearts to be deceitful and that we ought NOT follow it.
So instead, what does God say we should follow?
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
God's Word is what we should be following.
So don't follow your heart - make your heart follow God.
Happy New Year!
Make it the best 2014 it can be, by following the right heart - God's heart.
