“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” – Jeremiah 17:9
Our own hearts can cause us to lose our footing before we’re even aware it’s happening. That’s how deceitful the heart can be. The heart can be healthy and sick at the same time. You can never tell what the heart is up to. It’s so unpredictable. For example, when it comes to love, the heart is especially good at disguising its agenda. The heart likes to play trick on it. It simply just likes the thrill of the unknown. It likes to test and prod and probe where it excites and hurts the most. Or maybe, it’s just me who thinks that way. Anyway, I think the human heart acts that way because the human heart has the tendency to pervert and belittle what true love is. We’re fickle beings and never consistent. A bunch of double-minded junkies who is unstable in all that they do (James 1:7). We don’t treasure what’s important but only what feels good at the time of its convenient. Psh, if love is like that, then forget it. I want nothing to do with it. Keep me far far away from that twisted form of love. I’ve got too much to live for in my life.
Love, it’s beautiful in the eyes of God but wicked and corrupted if humans have anything to do with it.
Love, make it simple. Why complicate love? It really isn’t’ that hard you know. Take good care of your heart and don’t let it go wandering around, hurting and deceiving others – especially yourself.
