A man's heart reflects the man. Proverbs 27:19 (NIV)
Somehow i tink no one believes in the above statement anymore.
its like Bahh.. who cares...
The term "heart" is used to describe the bundle of desires, hopes, interests, ambitions, dreams, and affections that we have. Our heart represents the source of all our motivations - what we love to do and what we care about most. Even today, we still use the word in this way when we say, "I love you with all my heart."
The Bible says what is in your heart is what we really are, not what others think we are, or what circumstances force us to be (Proverbs 27:19). Our heart is the real us. It determines why we do the things we say, why we feel and act the way we do.
Physically, each of us has a unique heartbeat. Just as we each have unique thumbprints, eye prints, and voiceprints, our hearts beat in slightly different patterns. It's amazing that out of all the billions of people who've ever lived, no one has ever had a heartbeat exactly like yours.
In the same way, God has given each of us a unique emotional heartbeat that races when we think about the subjects, activities, or circumstances that interest us. We instinctively care about some things and not about others.
Another word for heart is passion. There are certain subjects that you feel deeply passionate about and others that you couldn't care less about. Some experiences turn us on and capture our attention, while others turn us off or bore us to tears.
These reveal the nature of our heart.
When you were growing up you may have discovered that you were intensely interested in some subjects that no one else in your family cared about.
There is a reason that we love to do these things.
