Do we watch over our heart, or do we follow our heart? In Proverbs 4:14-27 we see continued instruction on how to avoid evil. We must watch and guard our heart, not follow it. Our heart can be easily distracted if we are not guarding it. We are to discipline and direct our heart to follow and seek after the ways of God. Only by keeping our heart focused on Him will we avoid the pain of having our heart broken by the other things in this world.
