How frequently do you monitor your heart rate? I don’t track mine nearly as often as I should. During a recent stay at a local hospital, a nurse questioned my heart’s regularity. Based on my cardiac data, she suggested I had an abnormal rhythm. Fortunately for me, there was a technical glitch located in the system that needed repair. I sure was glad to get that business straightened out.
Just as the electrodes that measure the impulses of the human heart monitor its “body life,” so do impulses in our hearts and minds vivify and vitalize the rhythms of the process we call faith’s practice. Philosophers of faith frequently emphasize how important diamond-studded facets of one’s belief system are when the riches of God’s eternal truths drop the 18 inches between the head and the heart. Thinking religiously involves the impartation of spiritual attitudes and attributes into the emotional realm central to our affection for others. Allowing God to breathe His life into our nostrils enriches our experience in Christ.
