The Wellspring of Your Life

Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life.” (Proverbs 4:23, ESV)

Your most critical place is your heart; it is also your most vulnerable. Make it a citadel.

It is the wellspring of your entire life. From it flows everything else. It certainly flows through the pipes of your body, like your mouth, your eyes, or your hands and feet, but whatever flows out, begins here.

If your heart is tainted, every other part of your life will be tainted too. If your heart is pure, what a refreshing, joyful spring it is.

See to it that no one fails to obtain the grace of God; that no “root of bitterness” springs up and causes trouble, and by it many become defiled;” (Hebrews 12:15, ESV)

The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces evil, for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.” (Luke 6:45, ESV)
