Today, we are starting a new series called “Every Human Heart.” It’s built on the premise that there are things that every person needs…your spouse, your kids, your roommates, your boss…everyone. There are certain things that every human heart craves. They’re a part of our wiring, and they’re inescapable. We can twist these desires. We can suppress them. And, we can deny them. But they’re always being worked out in one way or another.
Living in the real world in a wise and compassionate way will be a lot easier, the more you understand what the heart wants. It will help you understand yourself better, as well as your spouse, your kids, your boss, your roommates…and the world that we live in. If you want to understand why our government is shut down, or why your folks broke up, or why your friend at school has suddenly turned on you, it has everything to do with what the heart wants. Understanding our need for things like purpose, security, justice and love is really helpful, and that’s what this series is about.
