We have heard it said that in terms of love and relationships, we are to follow our heart.
Unfortunately, while this may seem like a nice thought, we cannot follow our heart. The Bible says in Jeremiah 17:9 that our heart is deceitful above all things and it is desperately wicked. Because of this, we are not to follow our heart but to guard it.
Proverbs 4:23 tells us to guard our heart for it determines the course of your life. (NLT)
