Proverbs 4:23 says that "Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it." Often times we get into situations with people whose "heart conditions" don't match our own. Meaning the status (emotionally and spiritually) of their heart does not match the status of yours. Example, I I once talked to someone who told me that the current condition of his heart it black, yup..black. Knowing that how in the world could I expect someone who is dealing with that much emotional pain to handle my heart if I put it in his hand? I'm learning through God that people are the exact physical representations of the emotional and spiritual state of their heart.
