“Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life.” (Proverbs 4:23, ESV)
God wired your heart to bring forth life. It holds the fire for virtually every passion. From it, comes every good or negative thing.
I believe God would say, “If you want to experience the life for which I designed you, then you must protect your heart’s devotion.” It was made to love God and to love others—it was made to be a conduit of life’s flow and not a dead ended bog. You are a spring through which others are meant to drink cool waters.
Guard your heart from the world’s influence. Keep the power of sin at bay. Break-off anything within that would make life about you. It’s only in giving do we truly find ourselves.
