Don't Follow Your Heart

Jun 11, 2013 / Family Health     

We hear it all the time… “follow your heart.”  It sounds romantic. It sounds good. But authors Stephen and Alex Kendrick, in their book, The Love Dare, say the problem with following your heart is that you are just chasing whatever feels right at the moment, even though it may not be right.  It means throwing caution to the wind and pursuing your latest whim, even though it may not be logical.  The Kendricks further note that, “People forget that feelings and emotions are shallow, fickle, and unreliable.”  So instead of following your heart, lead your heart.
