The more important something is, the closer it’s guarded.
Action movies entertain us with stories about people stealing incredibly valuable items under extremely tight security.
Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.
Our hearts are THE most important thing we have and we often don’t do the best job of securing them. Dozens of things chip away at our heart’s health because we don’t inspect what’s happening in our lives often enough.
The problem isn’t that you share your heart with others. No. Technically, security guards aren’t hired to make sure gold stays in a bank. It’s not a high risk that 50 gold bars will grow legs and escape the vault.
Security guards are hired to make sure crooks stay out.
And that’s OUR job with our hearts. We NEED to share our hearts with the world but we need to make sure we don’t get hosed by the world. As the old Under Armour commercials said, “We must protect this house!”
I’ve never seen a $1,000 home with a burglar alarm. It’s not valuable so there’s no sense in protecting it.
Do we really understand the value of our hearts? We guard what we value. See your heart for what it is: THE MOST VALUABLE THING YOU HAVE and your greatest weapon to bring good in this world. Stop everything – work, bad relationships, EVERYTHING – that threatens your heart.
