Proverbs 4:20-27 (The Message)
Dear friend, listen well to my words; tune your ears to my voice.
Keep my message in plain view at all times. Concentrate! Learn it by heart!
Those who discover these words live, really live; body and soul, they’re bursting with health.
Keep vigilant watch over your heart; that’s where life starts.
Don’t talk out of both sides of your mouth; avoid careless banter, white lies, and gossip.
Keep your eyes straight ahead; ignore all sideshow distractions.
Watch your step, and the road will stretch out smooth before you.
Look neither right nor left; leave evil in the dust.
Our lives are noisy. Do we take the time to listen to God’s word? Are we in tune to God’s voice?
If we want to be in tune, we need to keep watch over our hearts, our mouths, our steps.
How can we keep watch over those? What would that look like?
What do we need to protect our hearts from?
Pray for your heart and step to be in tune with God this week.
