They say our hearts are about the size of our fists. Looking down at my fist, I realize how small a heart can be and yet it is vital to life, to being alive.
“Watch over your heart with all diligence, For from it flow the springs of life.”
(Proverbs 4:23, NASB)
In another version, the heart is called the “wellspring of life” meaning it is the starting point of everything else in life. Our hearts are the source of all our creativity, courage, and conviction.
All that we are is residing right there in something as small as our fist.
In order to make a fist, we must clench our hand tightly closed. Positioned as such, nothing can either enter or leave my fist. We are stuck with what is enclosed in the center of our fist.
How often do we live with our fists clenched? We hold onto insecurity, anger, jealousy and resentment.
Yet Christ calls us to live another way ”“ open hands. Open hearts.
