Heart

 

HEART

         Heart is used in Scripture as the most comprehensive term for the authentic person. It is the part of our being where we desire, deliberate, and decide. It has been described as "the place of conscious and decisive spiritual activity," "the comprehensive term for a person as a whole; his feelings, desires, passions, thought, understanding and will," and "the center of a person. The place to which God turns." ── J. Stowell, Fan The Flame, Moody, 1986, p. 13.


         We come to know truth not only reason, but still more so through our hearts. ── B. Pascal.


         The heart has its reasons that reason does not know. ── B. Pascal.

 

HEART, HARD

         If you live in a graveyard too long you stop crying when someone dies.── Traditional.
