Our hearts are amazing. They have the capability to be soft or to be hard. They can lead us in the way we should go. People live out of their hearts more than their brains or any logic. The heart is more than a muscle that pumps blood. It is the central and innermost part of who we are. The essence of a mans life from Gods perspective begins with the condition of a mans heart. Jesus knew all men by their hearts.
