proverbs 7.

people always say “follow your heart,” but really, should we follow our hearts?

the bible tells us not to follow the ways of the heart because “Her house is a highway to the grave, leading down to the chambers of death.” Proverbs 7:27

so, is it okay to follow the heart?

i’m guessing what this really means is, we can’t just think with the heart. the heart is always based on emotions, and honestly, we really can’t base every single thing with emotions. especially for girls. we’re all over-emotional, and if we do have to base everything with emotions, i think my life will fall apart.

i actually learned a poem about this last week about the heart versing the mind. i don’t remember what the title of the poem was called but it was by Emily Dickinson. the narrator was in love with this guy. her mind tell her to move on, but her heart still wants to love him.

this verse is not necessarily talking about how evil the heart is, but more of how we have to think with our mind as well. don’t let your heart do all the work, because chances are things will fall apart. God gave us different parts and He expects us to use them all.
