Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.
(Proverbs 4:23 (NIV))

What do you find yourself doing?

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
(Matthew 6:21 (NIV))

Is it just me, or does this look like it could easily become a self-perpetuating cycle? You treasure something, therefore you hide it in your heart. What you hide in your heart flows out into all that you do. You notice what is flowing out and you treasure it even more, and then you try to hide more of it in your heart, which then flows out even greater. What you treasure is what you will begin to hoard. It is what you will begin to hide away. It almost seems that once this gets started, it is not easy to change course, so we must be extremely careful to watch what we truly treasure.

With that said, do you guard your heart? Do you keep it from the things of this world? Do you keep it focused on the things of God? In essence, what do you treasure? What do you put into your heart? What do you find yourself hoarding away because you just can’t seem to let it go?

I am simply going to leave this in your hands and in your heart. Take a long hard look at what you hide in your heart. Take a long hard look at what flows from your heart. Just remember that what you try to hide in your heart will manifest itself in all that you do. With that said, I just have to ask this one more time.

What do you find yourself doing?
