TWO Ways to Take Care of Your HeartMar 13, 2020
The book of Proverbs is known as a book of wisdom. In chapter 15, it gives us wisdom on how to take care of our heart.
The Hebrew understanding of "the heart" included the emotions, but it also involved the mind, the conscious and the will. It means everything that is going on inside of you.
The human heart is the most deceitful of all things, and desperately wicked.
Who really knows how bad it is? But I, the Lord, search all hearts and examine secret motives. (1)
Only God sees and knows the heart of every human being. (2)
We don't even know what all is in our hearts and therefore, we don't know all that we are capable of, good or bad. However, in Proverbs 15, it does tell us 2 things we can do to take care of our hearts.
1. Seek knowledge.
Do you seek knowledge or do you wait for it to come to you?
Do you have a strategy or game-plan to help you seek knowledge?
So many people just go through life and are not intentional about living their lives.
Here are some areas you could seek knowledge and be intentional in your growth:
- Biblical Understanding
To start, pick one area to seek knowledge in. Now, what can you do to be intentional to get the knowledge? Here are some things to get you thinking...
- Read or listen to a book
- Listen to podcast
- Hire a life coach; that is somebody who can give you the knowledge you need and help you move forward or get unstuck.
- Go to school. At C3 College, you can get the knowledge and hands-on experience.
Decide what area you need to gain more knowledge in and then come up with a strategy to grow in that area.
2. Be intentional about what you are seeking
A miserable heart means a miserable life; a cheerful heart fills the day with song. (3)
- Is what I am listening to filling my heart with joy or making me miserable?
- What are you singing? What is coming from your mouth?
If you want to change your heart, mind, will, and emotions, then be intentional about what you are seeking. And then be intentional about what you are listening to and watching because those things affect what you say.
We believe what we hear ourselves say more than anybody else, so let's speak life-giving words. Speak words that encourage and build others up.
It will do your heart good.

2. 1 Kings 8:39
3. Provers 15:15 (MSG)
