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?
