Guard Your Heart

I have a Facebook friend.  His name is Al Perales.  I always look to see what he’s posted on his status because…well…the dude is funny.  His latest post was no exception and it actually had a moral.  Not that you have to make a moral out of everything.  But, as my congregation tells me, I can “preach anything.”  So here’s what Al put on his status on October 19, 2010…

Guard your heart and be cautious of who you let in because let me tell you, nothing hurts more than being taken advantage of by someone pretending to be a cardiologist.

Now to the moral…

Instead of my pontification, just think about it for a few moments.  It’s pretty clear without my help.  But…okay, just a tad…

Be loving.  Be a lover of people.  But, be wise about opening the treasure chest of your heart to anyone who acts like they care.  Everyone has an opinion.  Only a few truly have your best interests at heart.

That’s not cynicism, that’s wisdom.
