Sometimes we may have to break our common-sense rules. Those little self-erected laws and directives you can no longer rationalize or legitimately support, even with Scripture, may need to be set aside for a bit. You may have to face it—your heart is turning as frosty as super-chilled air in a walk-in freezer.  

God knew we would suffer from this now and then. He depicts it as a heart of stone. Our hearts can fossilize over time.
