Bible Verse for Today
“Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.” (Proverbs 4:23)
From Matthew 5:8 we understand that the one who is pure in heart will see God. Most of the things that will affect your life and destiny emanate from the heart. What defiles a man, and what causes man to sin proceed from the heart Matthew 15:19 “For out of the heart come evil thoughts–murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander.” If your heart is full of impure thoughts, given a little time, you see yourself practicing such. As long as the heart is polluted, your deeds will be sinful and you will lose out from God’s plan.
To get closer to God you must have a pure heart, no one can go to God with a dirty heart. Psalm 24:3-4 says, “Who may ascend the mountain of the LORD? The one who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not trust in an idol or swear by a false god.” God cherish a man with a pure heart, that’s why he wants us to guard our heart with all our strength, so that we won’t be far from him.
