As water reflects the face, so one’s life reflects the heart.   Proverbs 27:19 NIV


I planned to write more on this and include some thoughts about the end of my devotional readings from Bread and Wine: Readings for Lent and Easter.


But the thing about a proverb is it says what it says without needing any help from me.

    Someone should explain this proverb to me. Heart can have so many meanings, including that of a blood pump without any proven thinking or feeling capabilities. Is this another attempt to raise physiology to a moral level like the micro-physiologists on TV?

      The heart here doesn’t refer to the organ but instead as the center of emotional, intellectual, and moral activity.

    Oh? Is there such a center? Or was it invented by a religious scholar or a high school teacher?

    • mariegriffith on May 14, 2017 at 9:53 am

      It’s not invented. Do you love? Do you laugh and cry? Do you feel joy and awe when you’ve seen something beautiful? Feel anger at injustice? That’s the heart.
