Only Follow Your Heart: Mini Article

Children are raised with the encouragement to: “Follow your heart.”  But this advice ignores the warning: “O LORD, I know the way of man is not in himself; It is not in man who walks to direct his own steps” (Jeremiah 10:23).  God rejected people who “walked in the imagination of his evil heart " (Jeremiah 11:8).  After punishing them, God said: "they shall walk no more after the stubbornness of their evil heart” (Jeremiah 3:17).  None of us knows, completely from our own hearts, how to do good and not evil.  The solution?  “Your word I have hidden in my heart, That I might not sin against You!” (Psalm 119:11).   Children should rather pray: “Direct my steps by Your word, And let no iniquity have dominion over me” (Psalm 119:133).
