February is the month for matters of the heart. Throughout the month, we are reminded to develop and follow habits, i.e. eat the right foods, exercise, that promote a healthy heart for longer, more vibrant life. As I did in my previous blog, I encourage you to have heart in your business – it is the way to ethically succeed. Also, to that list I would add guarding your heart.
I encourage you to guard your heart against callousness of others and from situations that will deplete your energy and spirit. However, don’t interpret this to mean live in fear. On the contrary, your life should be full of love, free of groundless fears. John 14:27 reads “…Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” Guarding your heart is more about allowing others into your lives wisely. Belief in the Word of the Lord is your protection and should be your guiding spirit.
