Wise Heart

My heart is at the core of my being. I’m not just speaking of my “physical blood-pumping organ”; I’m speaking of my character core.  I believe that we act out of our heart more than out of our head/intellect. I don’t think that is a bad thing because God wants our heart to be like His heart – full of compassion and wisdom. Solomon was the wisest king who lived on earth besides the King of Kings and Solomon had some things to say about this subject. Check this out…

“Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path”
 1 Dead flies can make even perfume stink.
In the same way, a little foolishness can spoil wisdom.
2 The heart of the wise leads to right,
but the heart of a fool leads to wrong.
3 Even in the way fools walk along the road,
they show they are not wise; they show everyone how stupid they are.
4 Don’t leave your job just because your boss is angry with you.
Remaining calm solves great problems.
12 The words of the wise bring them praise,
but the words of a fool will destroy them. 
13 A fool begins by saying foolish things 
and ends by saying crazy and wicked things.
14 A fool talks too much. No one knows the future,
and no one can tell what will happen after death.
15 Work wears fools out;
they don’t even know how to get home. (Ecclesiastes 10:1-4; 12-15 NCV)

 The heart of the wise person leads to good sound decisions and godly living. The heart of the wise person can help govern the intellect and really have a strong positive impact on others. The foolish person can also have impact in a negative way. I want to learn from wise and godly people. I want to be a leader who influences not only wise people, but foolish people. After people who are foolish can become wise from the same Source that I became wise from – the heart of God. God’s heart is the source of ALL wisdom!

 Pressing On!
