Proverb to Ponder

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

" The heart should be guarded for out of it (a wellspring) come one's actions (cf. Luke 6:45). Here the word "heart" means more than mental capacity; it also encompasses one's values (cf Matt. 6:21)."

~The Bible Knowledge Commentary

For more excellent insight on this verse and what it truly means to guard (nasar) your heart (leb), click here

Jessica had time to do the word studies, whereas I, with my sick baby and sick self, did not.  I don't know her, but found her and her most excellent post, when I googled this verse.   Isn't the internet grand?
