Follow you heart?

Disney leads the way in our culture, ever since each one of us was a child, in telling us that all we need to do is “follow our heart.” What they don’t tell us is that our heart will lie and swindle and deceive us. Jer 17:9 says, “The heart is deceitful above all things”

The world says trust your heart

  • The Bible says don’t be deceived by your heart
  • Prov 28:26 – “He who trusts in his own heart is a fool, But whoever walks wisely will be delivered.”
The world says follow your heart
  • The Bible says to keep or guard your heart
  • Prov 4:23 – “Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life.”
The world says listen to your heart
  • The Bible says to direct your heart
  • Prov 23:9 – “Hear, my son, and be wise, and direct your heart in the way.
Our culture is a slave to their own emotions and feelings. Our feelings are a blessing from God but we are not supposed to be led by them. We are told to guard and direct our heart not be led by it.
