Above all else, guard your heart,

Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life. – Proverbs 4:23 The proverb gives us a profound truth. The condition of our heart (our emotions, our will, our mind) affects everything. We would like to think that science is unbiased, that reporting is fair minded, or that economics is neutral. But we quickly find that all fields of knowledge have lenses that they assume to be true. That is why the Scripture was given to us as the lens to see the world. Otherwise, other lenses are there to color our heart and taint the water that comes out of our life. Which lens are you looking through today? Are you guarding your heart?

    That’s powerful sister Dorothy! We really have to guard out hearts because the enemy is deceitful. Also, we never know how the Lord desires to fill us with his fruit at any given time. We must be available with space to accept his invitation. Thanks for teaching us the importance of guarding our hearts. Bless you!

    God bless you Dorothy! I wanted to come by to say, “Thank you! So very much for following us.” It’s always a blessing to meet a new follower and a fellow believer in Christ. Your own words of encouragement brought a smile to my face. Thank you once again and please continue to lift Him up by word, deed and pictures (they’re great witnesses).

    Blessings,
    Rebecca and (Ma Chris too! :))

    Everything is biased in this world. I can’t wait to live in the new world Jesus promised us. There, all will be truly equal.
