Keep Thy Heart

” ‘Keep thy heart with all diligence’ (Prov. 4:23):  this is the great task which God has assigned unto each of His children.  But oh, how sadly is the heart neglected!  Of all their concerns and possessions, the least diligence is used by the vast majority of professing Christians in the keeping of their hearts.  As long as they safeguard their other interests–their reputations, their bodies, their positions in the world–the heart may be left to take its own course. …The man is what his heart is.  If this be dead to God, then nothing in him is alive.  If this  be right with God, all will be right.  As the mainspring of a watch sets all its wheels and parts in motion, so as a man ‘thinketh in his heart, so is he’ (Prov. 23:7).”  –A. W. Pink “Practical Christianity” p. 99

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
