“Above all else, guard your heart,
for everything you do flows from it.”
Proverbs 4:23 (NIV)
Guard your heart (mind, will, emotions):
Guard your heart by controlling what you allow your eyes to see. Luke 11:34-36
Guard your heart by controlling what you allow your ears to hear.
Guard your heart by controlling what you allow your mind to think about. Philippians 4:8
Everything you do flows from it:
“The good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth what is good; and the evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth what is evil; for his mouth speaks from that which fills his heart.”
Luke 6:45 (NASB)
“Create in me a clean heart, O God.
Renew a loyal spirit within me.”
Psalms 51:10 (NLT)
