Watch your heart!

Spirit Radio’s word for today was from Proverbs: “Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.” Proverbs 4:23.

I’m reading through the bible again and again there is this ongoing theme throughout about the first commandment:  Love God above all and first of all.  A walk in the woods

Time and again (and again and again) the message comes through “Don’t worship false idols”. This is a matter of the heart’s direction. Take it from me, after 35 years I know what this means. My heart and its leanings have determined the course of my life. It is the same for everyone.

So what does it mean to “Guard your heart”? To me it seems obvious that it means to keep it focused on obeying those commandments that Jesus said sums up every commandment:

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart……”

What direction are you going in?
