Above All Else

Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.  (Proverbs 4:23, NIV 1984). 

My Musings – “Above all else” means that it is more important than anything else.  So, guarding (watching over and protecting) your heart is more important than anything else you could guard.  This, of course, begs the question as to why it is so important?  Because it is the wellspring (source of continual supply) of life.

“No good tree bears bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. Each tree is recognized by its own fruit. People do not pick figs from thorn bushes, or grapes from briers. The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart.” (Luke 6:43–45, NIV 1984).

My Advice – The condition of your heart determines the condition of your life.  The condition of your heart is determined by  your relationship with Christ, is “above all else.”  So, “above all else,” make sure your heart is right with Christ.

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.
