Heart first

“The heart wants what it wants” – So says Selena Gomez in her 2014 hit song. She’s right. We all think with our hearts. If we continue to think that only the right type of knowledge is good enough to move of change people, the world will stay the same. We al think with our emotions first. Study after study proves this. We intuitively know how we feel about things. This is why it is so important to address people’s feelings when life changes are required. Our hearts are the centres of both our will and our deepest emotions. The Bible teaches this too. This is why we have to take care of our hearts – according to Proverbs 4:23 it is the source of life and death. The Lord calls us to love Him with our hearts, and not only with our minds. Our hearts should beat warmly for the Lord. Our faith should touch and change our will and thoughts, but also our deepest emotions. Then our hearts will truly be fulfilled. Then we receive God’s peace which is bigger than heart and mind.
