STOP AND THINK – The quest for character requires that certain things be kept in the heart as well as kept from the heart. An unguarded heart spells disaster. (Charles Swindoll, pastor and author)

What we are and become is the sum of all that we take into our heart (mind). But that’s not all. Equally important is what we don’t allow to enter into our thought patterns and become a part of our makeup. It is important to set boundaries on what we read or see and the activities we pursue so that our minds do not become filled with what is harmful and destructive.

Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. (Proverbs 4:23)
