Guarding our Hearts – Comments from Matthew Henry on Prov. 4:20-27

“…above all keepings; we must keep our hearts with more care and diligence than we keep anything else. We must keep our eyes (Job 31;1), keep our tongues (Ps. 34:13), keep our feet (Eccl. 5:1), but, above all, keep our hearts. A good reason given for this care, because out of it are the issues of life. Out of a heart well kept will flow living issues, good products, to the glory of God and the edification of others. Or, in general, all the actions of the life flow from the heart, and therefore keeping that is making the tree good and healing the springs. Our lives will be regular or irregular, comfortable or uncomfortable, according as our hearts are kept or neglected.”
