It’s a common refrain from those in the world. “Follow your heart.” Or maybe you’ve heard someone say, “the heart wants what the heart wants.” It’s usually meant to be aspirational and reassuring, giving the individual confidence to do whatever it is they have a mind to do.
Pop singer Madonna released a song in 1998 called, “Sky Fits Heaven” that reached number forty-one on the Billboard Dance Club Chart. It includes this line in the chorus, “I think I’ll follow my heart, it’s a very good place to start.” And in a more recent post listing the ten reasons why one should follow their heart, a “tele-health counselor” lists as number one, “When you follow your heart, you cease having regrets.”
Sounds awesome! How does Scripture align with this statement?
