Guard your heart
Thought of the day:
One of the most important advices addressed to man by God himself and through which he greets us even today is found in the book of Proverbs:
I quote, ‘Guard your heart more than anything, for the springs of life come out of it,’ I concluded the quote from Proverbs 4:23
The concept of ‘heart’ used in this text, as in most ancient writings, does not refer exclusively to the fascinating biological mechanism that ensures the transport of blood in the body, but rather refers to what we call in simple language: ‘the mind ”Man. That individual Universe in which dwell the dreams, ideas, aspirations and the whole character of each of us.
By reducing this complex machine called ‘mind’ to its essence, we understand that its principles of operation are based on a simple postulate, namely: like a mill it will generate only what you give it to grind, thus expressing itself. In the behavior manifested daily only according to the raw material we offered as food.
By filling our minds with goodness, we will project into our own lives a colorful universe only in the details of goodness, or on the contrary by choosing to fill it with evil, we will slowly but surely become harmful beings both for ourselves and for our fellow men.
Meditating now on these thoughts, wherever you are, try to make a brief analysis starting from the following question:
‘What do I choose to feed my mind today?’
So if you want to be a source of inspiration, kindness, and righteousness in the tumultuous contemporary society, (a world that seems to cling to darkness, evil, and spiritual degradation rather than light and truth), you must start with the beginning, building You have a healthy mindset.
For this, however, you need to nourish your mind with the wisdom of God, recorded punctually in the book full of His teachings, counsels, and plans, which He so lovingly addressed to mankind. We call it the generic Bible.
