Today’s reading is Proverbs 4-5.

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

Our lives stem from our hearts. Everything we say begins in our hearts. Everything we do begins in our hearts. Every place we go begins in our hearts. Everything we are begins in our hearts. Our hearts then are of utmost importance to our lives and future. That is why God says we need to keep or guard or protect our hearts. If our hearts are damaged, defiled, distorted, our entire lives will be also. How do you protect your heart? Cover it up with God’s Word and wisdom, its the only inoculation and insulation against the distortion of the world on your heart. Keep your heart; it will change your life.

Tomorrow’s reading is Proverbs 6-7.

A Word for Our Kids

Hey kids, are you getting the picture yet that wisdom is important? That is one of the main messages of Proverbs. Wisdom is the ability to live life well. You need that. But remember where wisdom comes from. Not from television, the movies, magazines, or the radio. It comes from God. It comes from His Word. Keep reading Proverbs and keep gaining wisdom. You’ll be glad you did as you get older.
