Verse of the Day 6-21-22

Above all else, guard your heart,
for everything you do flows from it. Proverbs 4:23

The heart represents the center of our being-the source of desire and decision. We must not allow anything to come into or flow out of our hearts that is not pleasing to God and helpful for spiritual growth. So we guard what we watch, listen to, read, think about and talk about. All of those sense are ways that images and ideas root themselves in our hearts and affect the type of people we become. Knowing and following God’s purposes involves a firm commitment to “seek first his kingdom and his righteousness” (Matthew 6:33). If we ever find that our spiritual hunger for God is decreasing, we should rethink our priorities, honestly admit that we have stopped growing and seriously pray for a renewed desire for God and his activity in our lives. Failure to “guard” our hearts results in a loss of God’s blessing and direction, and it puts us at risk of being trapped and even destroyed spiritually. Keeping careful watch over our hearts-using wisdom about what we see, hear, say and do-will add strength and stability to our spiritual lives and keep God’s favor on our efforts.
