“…I’ll take HEART over DUTY anyday, anytime….”

Duty or  Heart?  Which is it that turns us on…to do our best?  Duty – which requires us to complete the task, as in being responsible and obligated; or is it Heart; as in Mr. Tin Man of The Wizard of Oz, who wanted HeartI’ll take Heart any day, anytime.  The reason being is that, more often than not, if one doesn’t have heart, then he’ll not win.  Having heart is not much diffe20131014_080202rent than having a killer instinct. When the chips are down… having Heart is the ACE in the hole that allows the underdog to become the SuperDog.  Heart separates the Prince from the Pauper.  Heart gives us that certain advantage that only Heart can give.  Duty is just that….DUTY, it has little, if any, love attached to it.  It’s the same thing that Prince Charles has had for the last 30 years.  Diana, on the other hand, chose Heart over Duty.  Given all of this rhetoric….it is the rare occasion, where you have both Duty and Heart as a precious combination.  Proverbs 23:26 My son, give me your heart, and let your eyes observe my ways. …Blessings…cjlb…10-14-13
