Guard Your Heart

Posted: September 03, 2018

"Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life."
Proverbs 4:23 NLT

Whoa.  There are actually a few verses in the Bible that remind us to guard our hearts.  Apparently it's a big deal!  But what does it actually mean?  It's kinda like that song you may have learned in Sunday School as a child: 

Oh, be careful little eyes what you see.   Oh, be careful little eyes what you see.
For the Father up above is looking down with love, so be careful little eyes what you see.
(ears what you hear / mouth what you say / hands what you do)

What you watch, listen to, allow in your home, do with your free time...it determines the course of your life!  It will show through in all areas, and if you claim to be a Christ-follower, it is a representation Him.  More importantly, God sees our heart.  Even if we think we can hide our private life from our family & coworkers, God knows.  So, guard your heart.

Jesus, I can't ignore Your gentle warnings to guard my heart.  Show me the areas I need to change and give up to You in order to redirect the course of my life.  Thanks for looking out for me.  I love You and I want to be a good representation of Christ in all areas of my life.  Amen.
