The human heart is a bit of a mysterious thing. The existence of the human heart cannot be denied. The human heart is the center of our being; our emotions, thoughts, and will. The heart is the home of the personal life. Heart and soul are sometimes interchanged.
“The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left.” The human heart is me and drives me.
To what extent can I control my heart? With discipline, a person may control thoughts, emotions, and will. Yet a person can only work with what they have. Make wine from spoiled grapes and the wine will be rotten.
I need not despair at the condition of my heart. “What is impossible with man, is possible with God,” Jesus taught. The Lord transforms that which is impure. He changes anything. Jesus changes water into wine. “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.”
