Protect your heart

Protect your heart

The Bible says to guard your heart.
Why?
Because everything you do flows from it.

How do we guard our hearts?

1. Watch what you watch – be mindful about the type of content you are taking in be it music, movies, YouTube, Instagram, etc. What would your YouTube history say about you? Ensure that the media you are constantly consuming aligns with Biblical values and is not going to taint your heart.

2. Choose your close friends and relationships wisely.

3. Follow Jesus (this is the main one).

Be chill

Be chill

I DON’T CARE, I’M DONE
I DON’T WANT TO TALK TO YOU EVER AGAIN
: when friends become acquaintances, just passing each other in passageways.

When you are in the middle of a super intense argument, choose to respond gently and not harshly. It can calm the situation down. You don’t want to say things you regret afterwards. So be chill, respectfully disagree and answer in love. My mommy always says, “keep the respect high and the anger low.”

Proverbs 15:1 (http://bit.ly/2XR2sLF) says, “A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.”

#Weight

Garfield said “Fat has a sick sense of humour” (and he’s an authority on weight issues). I too have been told, “You need to lose a bit of pudding (weight) and get into shape”. My response, “Round is also a shape – Ha!” But why is it that putting on the pudding is SO much easier that losing it?

“Worry weighs us down; a cheerful word picks us up”. Proverb 12:25 (http://bit.ly/2PhD0hP)

There are many anxieties in life that weigh our hearts down. If the waters of your heart are low, find a Jesus-friend to help fill it up. Never underestimate an encouraging word whose season has come.

#Sharp

My favourite knife is my Leatherman. Why? It’s REALLY sharp. (I’ve even cut cable with it). Second is my chef’s knife. Why? It’s balanced and REALLY sharp – except when it’s blunt. (Then it’s just a pain to use and REALLY dangerous too).

Proverbs 27:17 (http://bit.ly/2GrREj6) says “As iron sharpens iron, so one person (a friend) sharpens another”. This doesn’t mean rubbing each other up the wrong way. It means giving each other the right to be in each other’s business in an up-close and personal way with the intent to make each other better – sharp, balanced and becoming more like Jesus.
