Guard your heart!

Wednesday 4th of August, 2010

Today’s “Pearl of wisdom” is from Proverbs Chapter 4 verse 23.

“Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.” (NLT)

I have a gorgeous dog named Molly and she is absolutely adorable! She’s known for being vocal at times and I’ve learnt to interpret all the different barks and whines that she makes. One of the things that I love about Molly is that she is always “on guard.” She can be sunbaking and sleeping (sometimes she snores when she does this – too cute!) or playing ball in the backyard, but the minute she hears something strange, be it another dog passing by or a person walking up to our front door, she lets me know by the sound she makes. It happens all the time and it’s at the point now where I don’t think I need a doorbell anymore…Molly has replaced it!

In Proverbs, the condition of your heart is a key theme and here you are encouraged to guard it. Just as Molly is vigilantly on guard around my home, you are to be constantly aware of what is happening on the outside and on the inside of you. Sure, you can be going about work, school and life as normal, but have an awareness of the things being said around you as well as what you are thinking about. Your heart is precious so be actively watching over it for it truly does determine your course in life.
