Decided Hearts

conversation-hearts

Nothing exposes the content of our hearts like conflict.

It's like a spiritual EKG.

We can think our hearts are full of love...but let a conflict brew and it can be stunning to see what pours out.
Competitiveness.
Side-taking.
Sarcasm.
Cruelty.
Going for the burn.
Pride.
Smugness.

It's a season of conflict that can show us if we have a divisive heart...or a decided heart.

A decided heart de-sides.
A decided heart chooses peace.
A decided heart chooses resolution.
A decided heart chooses compassion.
A decided heart chooses unity.

In this Valentine season, hearts abound right now, gracing the grocery store shelves and shop windows. I'm taking it as a signal, an opportunity to be reminded about the spiritual state of my heart. Divisive...or decided?
