Harden the mind, soften the heart. The melody line of the last couple days have been tough and tender. Today’s day in the BBTL book is another AND to tough and tender.
Today’s BBTL message is about yourself, rather than others. Tough and tender is usually in context toward a message you’re trying to give others. Becoming hard and soft is more focused on your own heart and mind, and less about your message to others.
You harden your mind when you are resilient to conflict, stress, and discipline. The AND is to not let it harden your heart toward the world and others. We are truly resilient when we soften our heart despite the stress of life.
Are you resilient and content, or resilient and frustrated?
