Everything Flows From The Heart So Guard Your Heart

Taking care of our health is something that is important to all of us. We try to eat well and we exercise. We do those things because we want to take care of our health. We especially want to take care of our heart.
But heart-health is not limited to the physical organ. Heart-health also means guarding our heart from a spiritual standpoint. The reason for this is because everything grows out of the heart.
In Mark 7:21-23, Jesus said, “For from within, out of a person’s heart, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, wickedness, deceit, lustful desires, envy, slander, pride, and foolishness. All these vile things come from within; they are what defile you.”
Every evil thing comes from the heart. This is why we must protect our heart. So how do we do that? We do it by being careful what we watch and listen to. We are also careful about what we read. We should monitor our heart and, if a thought pops in our mind that is wrong, we should immediately take that thought captive to the obedience of Christ.
So, guard your heart. Watch what you listen to and watch. Make sure that everything that goes into the heart is good because everything flows from the heart.
