Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. – Proverbs 4:23
We’re encouraged to guard our heart above all else. That means that we should make it a priority. We should make guarding our heart important. Every day we take time and effort to guard our body. If we ride a bike, we put on a helmet. If we cross the street we make sure that no cars are coming. We spend a lot of effort to make sure our body stays safe. When it comes to our heart, many times we throw caution to the wind. We date whoever we feel like, paying no attention to what they believe or who they are. In the process our heart gets trampled on in relationships. Challenge yourself to begin living differently. Choose to put some effort into guarding your heart. Don’t just date any person that comes your way. Be selective and take any necessary precautions to guard your heart.
