The Importance of the Heart (Proverbs 3:5-6; 4:23)
Repeatedly in the Proverbs we are instructed about the heart. We are to protect our heart for it is the place in which we develop trust. It is in the heart where decisions are make, commands are stored, and knowledge is acquired. It becomes quite clear that in Proverbs we are talking about more than an organ that pumps blood. We will focus on two very important aspects of the heart that in many ways guide all other references; trusting and guarding. If we can learn to protect our hearts and trust God in our heart we can choose the path of wisdom.

    Five People You Meet in Proverbs
    We can all think of people we have met in our lives that are the kind of folks we want to emulate. We can all think of people we have met who are the kind of individuals we would rather forget. We all know people who are somewhere in between those extremes. We can learn from them all. We will look at the wicked, the mocker, the fool, the sluggard, and the simple and see what we can learn from each one. More importantly we will need to look inward and see what God may want to change in each of us.

    No matter where we are on the journey of life, we find that we can use some direction. Living in the information age means that there is always something new to learn. How do we make sure we are focused on the right things? How can be make sure we are moving in the right direction? Oddly enough we find that a collection of instructions and sayings gathered some 3000 years ago can still keep us on the right path. It is our responsibility to understand God’s wisdom and then choose wisely.
