God: gave us this precious gift…
Proverbs 4:23 (KJV) “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life”.
Sometimes we tend to be unaware of the gifts that are right before our eyes and look at the things we have as just ordinary, so we bestow limited attention to caring for these precious tokens.
It is a blessing to be fully equipped with all the limbs and body part that make up the human body; some of us aren’t so well endowed, and that can be a struggle at times. But as for the inner workings which makes us thinking and living beings, we have to utilize them and protect them at the same time.
Our heart for instance is one of the integral organs we could ever be blessed with and on a spiritual level, it is the “place” of operation wherein we figure out good and bad and discard the things that aren’t worthy to be considered.
The word of God tells us to “guard” it with good reason; if left untended, it can be corroded and covered inside out with filth that leaves nothing good for translation.
I second that cautionary: let us guard our hearts…
