Guard Your Heart!

While we are masking/guarding our mouths to prevent the spread and possible contraction of the COVID-19, let us also be mindful to mask/guard our hearts during these ambiguous times! Proverbs 4:23–26 instructs believers to, “above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. Keep your mouth free of perversity; keep corrupt talk far from your lips. Let your eyes look straight ahead; fix your gaze directly before you. Give careful thought to the paths for your feet and be steadfast in all your ways.” When Solomon refers to guarding the heart, he really means the inner core of a person—the thoughts, feelings, desires, will, and choices that make that person who he/she is. The Bible tells us that our thoughts often dictate who we become (Proverbs 23:7; 27:19). Believers know the peace of God, which surpasses all human comprehension (Philippians 4:7) will enable them to guard their hearts and minds in Christ amidst all circumstances. Here’s some more good news; the Lord will not relinquish His grip on the treasure of His precious people but will hold us firmly in Christ (Romans 8:31-39). We guard our hearts because the Lord, our Warrior, goes before us, in front of us, and is on every side at all times and in every place we go. Our heart is the most important leadership tool we have. It is not our experience, knowledge, or skills. It is our heart that matters most so it’s incumbent upon us to guard it!
