Understanding the heart...Part 2
- the yud, or smallest Hebrew letter, symbolizing the head, the mind, the intellect
- the chaf, which represents the body physically
- and the vav, which connects the two previous and looks like a hook
So the word picture here is also that the heart is the pathway from the body to the mind. This goes back to what the Hebrews believe about the heart, the inner man, the seat of all things unconscious, that which is deeper than the mind, the place where all thought and action flow out of.
Okay, that was a bit boring, even for me, but important because now that we know what the heart is, we can move forward with how utterly crucial it is to your relationship with God and daily life, and why it is the main target for the enemy in this war we're born into.
