      A wise and understanding heart does not repay a hurt with a hurt. In doing so, the heart is diminished. Fissures form. Love leaks out. Every pain given in return for one received, changes the contents of the heart. It is no longer defined by love, wisdom and understanding. It is redefined by the bearers of hurt and hate, pain and prejudice, meanness and madness, sorrow and sadness. You give away control of your very own heart.  

      The despair of being hurt is healed by overcoming it, not clinging to the hurt and inflicting more of it on the world. When darkness is added to darkness, no one can see, no one can love. Everyone loses.
      Love is not always warm and fuzzy. Sometimes it’s the integrity we hold on to when we‘re tempted to strike back. Sometimes it’s the honor that keeps us from exchanging the valuable contents of our heart for the harsh satisfaction of lashing back.  

      No, the way of love is not always easy, but when night falls, dawn is assured.  

      The integrity and honor of a wise and understanding heart, rises with the sun of a new day.  

      “Because you have asked for understanding to discern judgment. I have given you a wise and understanding heart.” 1 Kings 3:11-12  

      Living in love and loving life,
