Words to Encourage – Proverbs 4:23

“Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life.” Proverbs 4:23, ESV

However, it is in times of great stress and turmoil that our true characters are revealed. Do we have a character molded in the image of Christ? Are we bearing the fruit of His spirit? Friends, let us guard our hearts.
