11/08/07 - Wellspring

Proverbs 4:23 Guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.

On Dictionary.com the word wellspring gave this meaning: a source or supply of anything, esp. when considered inexhaustible: a wellspring of affection.

Our hearts are the wellspring, the inexhaustible supply, of our love, affections, emotions, and feelings. This should be guarded and protected.

If you found an inexhaustible supply of money how closely would you guard this supply? You'd make sure that this supply did not get in the hands for the wrong person. You'd carefully look over the well being of this supply. You'd guard this supply!

What does: Guard your heart look like for you?

If it is indeed a wellspring, then we need not guard the outpouring of our hearts, (if that's what you meant by letting it get into the hands of the wrong person), but we need to guard what we allow into our hearts, bitterness, impurity, hatred, worldly images and ideas. Because what we allow in is what wells up and overflows to those around us.
