Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flows the springs of life. –Proverbs 4:23
This verse always hits me in the gut.
I guard my keys, wallet, student ID, money…you get the point. I protect anything that is valuable to me from others.
But what about my heart?
What about when I’m irritated by someone close to me and I start mentally ticking off all of their faults? Is that protecting my heart from evil? Definitely not.
Or what about those times I allow my heart to get way too involved when I’m texting a guy? Do I guard it and keep my mind in check? Nope. Oftentimes not.
With all vigilance.
This means we should be ACTIVELY protecting our hearts, because the heart is so deceitful. It can make you believe your feelings are perfectly innocent, when in reality they so often affect all the other “springs” of your life.
So I challenge you to be vigilant, friends. Guard your most precious possession.
