According to pop-culture philosophy, the way to find yourself is to “follow your heart”. We’ve all heard it said. But while people look inward for fulfillment and happiness, they realize that following their heart hasn’t worked. We live in an age of depression, anxiety, and boredom. So what’s the solution? According to Thaddeus Williams in his recent book, Don’t Follow Your Heart, we need to look outside of ourselves. In fact, we need to look up to God. The Creator who made the Milky Way and the Grand Canyon is the same Creator who made us. And we are made to walk with God and live in harmony with our fellow man. Christianity teaches that the way back to God is through humility and relationship with Jesus Christ, the one who overcame sin and despair and give us peace and hope in exchange.
