On Guard

Proverbs 4:23 23 Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. (NIV)

What we allow to stay in our mind seeps down into our heart.  To guard our heart we must be careful what we allow our mind to think.  To guard our mind we must feed it with the word of God, the Holy Bible.  We must also protect it from things that would lull us away from God’s word.  That means not reading, listening or viewing certain things.  We know what is bad for us.  We falsely think we are strong enough to withstand continuous exposure but continuous exposure eventually makes us think it’s the norm.  We can check what’s in our heart by listening to what comes out of our mouths.  Our mouths are good barometers of what is really inside of us.  Let us pay attention to what we say and what we think.  Let us practice really abiding in Christ and allowing Him to fully abide in us.
