Our heart is so important. It is the seat to our Christian walk.
As a matter of fact, your heart is so important that it takes “all diligence” to take care of it.
“ Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life” (Proverbs 4: 23).
“Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life” (NLT)
“Watch over your heart with all diligence, For from it flow the springs of life”. AMP

This is why we are to bring “every thought” captive to the obedience of Christ ( 2Cor 10: 5; and mediate on the Word of God ( Matthew 4: 4, Colossians 3: 16). Spending time in the presence of the Lord also strengthens our hearts.
The word diligence means “ Careful, persistent work or effort, steady, earnest.
We must walk in discernment and flee away from anything that is not healthy for our hearts.
