Above all else, guard your heart — for everything you do flows from it. Proverbs 4:23
In Proverbs we are told by Solomon, the wisest man to live, to guard our hearts above ALL else. There’s something about the heart. When you think of the body, it’s the life — it keeps life moving. Beating. When you think of our minds, our self, the heart is a critical part of us — who God made us to be.
Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and the anxieties of life…Luke 21:3a
I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love,may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ,and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Ephesians 3:16-19
