Proverbs 4:23 niv


Your heart is the core of you; your innermost part.
It is where your life begins,
where feelings and desires originate.

Be wise in what you allow to grow in your heart.
See that the scent of your heart is lovely and the fruit sweet.
Do not let weeds and thorns take root and do not let it become hardened.
Protect your heart for it is tender and easily led astray.

What are the waters of the wellspring of your life like?
Are you careful to keep them clear and clean, without pollution?

Blessings this day of grace,

  1. I love this verse, Patricia, and pray for His help as I guard it. This reminds me of the Philippians 4:8 verse, to think on these things .. whatever is true, noble, just , pure, etc. Thank you and God bless you for helping us in our walks with Jesus!

  3. I hope and pray that the Holy Spirit will purify and guard me so I many never lose what is holy.

    Pollution is unavoidable in the current state of affair. The more I am open to Him, the more I rely on Him. Peace be with you.

    • Pollution is perhaps unavoidable but we don’t have to let it be a part of us. We have a Spirit that is pure and will help us purify what needs to be cleansed.
