In the entire Biblical Text, there are over seven hundred references to the heart saying all kinds of different things. Some condemn the heart, some seek to redeem it. Some make it sound like our hearts are docile and incapable of making good decisions, others seem to say that our whole life is shaped by our heart.
So which is it? Are our hearts fundamentally good or evil? Can they be trusted? Should we follow our heart? Listen to it? Pay attention?
Quote we've been pondering: We posted this one on our Instagram earlier this week…
“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.” – Rainer Maria Wilke
The book I'm currently reading: “The Virgin Way” by Richard Branson. This book is Richard's lessons on leadership. Stand out lesson: There are two words leaders don't nearly say enough; ‘thank you'.
