At your age, you may regularly visit a cardiologist who runs tests on your heart. God, the Great Physician, is even more interested in your heart’s condition. While the cardiologist listens for heartbeats and rhythms, God looks for love, humility, and forgiveness. Ask God to guard your heart’s health today.
—Missy Buchanan, Spirit Boosters for the Journey of Aging: 366 Devotions (Upper Room Books, 2016)
How is your heart’s health today? Is your heart full of love, humility, and forgiveness? Join the conversation.
Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life.
