|Above all else, guard your heart,|
for it is the wellspring of life.
|Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.|
Guarding our hearts from sin and the world is of chief importance. It has been said, "As a man thinks, so he is."
A wellspring is a source of continual supply -- often related to wells and water. We must guard our hearts from being polluted by sin as much as possible, as sin pollutes the living waters which are to flow from us.
