Our heart is the most important
organ in our body. Also, the heart is
the most important part of our
spiritual life. The Bible says the
devil walks about like a prowling
lion ready to destroy us. As
Christians, we must we on guard. We
must be aware of what our eyes see,
our mouth speaks and where our feet
go. We use our eyes, our mouth and
our feet either to obey God or disobey
In Matthew 16:6, Christians are
called to watch out and beware. Mark
13:23 reminds us to take heed. Out
of our heart comes emotions,
conscience, thoughts and will. Where
our heart leads, the eyes, the mouth
and feet follow. Pride, envy, greed
and power are the devices Satan uses to
Proverbs 4:23 commands us to
guard our heart. We must be ready to
guard our heart at all times. Proverbs
explains exactly how we can guard our
heart. In verse 24, we are told to
put away from us a deceitful mouth.
Verse 24 indicates we are always to
have our eyes looking directly ahead.
If we focus straight ahead, we are not
distracted by pride, envy, greed, power
and lust. Verse 26 calls us to watch
the path where our feet travel. Our
feet take us to places that please or
displease God. Finally, verse 27
finalizes these instructions. Verse
27 commands us to turn our feet from
evil. If we guard our heart at all
times, we will experience the beauty
and mercy of walking with God.
