“Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life.”
-Proverbs 4:23 NKJV
The New Living Translation reads, “Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.” The Bible instructs us to guard our hearts above all else. I would say this is one of those really important life lessons.
Last night I dug out one of my journals from 2005 and found a note in the front pocket sleeve that read:
“guard your heart – from it come the issues of life. (Life issues forth from the heart – from “the abundance of the heart…”). Let God be the One who guides it. He is jealous for you and your heart. Don’t give it away to others.”
