#10 in the series "Wisdom From Heaven For Life On Earth"
It would be almost impossible to overstate the importance of the heart in the book of Proverbs. The heart, of course, is rarely mentioned as the organ that pumps blood in your chest. By "heart" the writers of Proverbs are referring to the inner you, the spring of your thoughts and affections, the place where priorities and decisions are settled and established.
No one else sees this part of a person. You can't examine it in any hospital or medical center. Yet the Bible says it's the most important part of wise living. If everything else were perfect, but the heart was wrong, the whole life will eventually corrode and fall apart.
On the flip side, though life be trying and difficult, if the heart is kept pure and grounded in God's laws, nothing will be able to steal the joy and inner blessing of the Lord. Circumstances don't control or define the life. The godly heart is the control center for sound living now, and on into eternity.
