The heart is a sensitive part which we must guard carefully. For every action anyone took or will ever take begins from the heart, so we must secure it by intense study of the word of God, the Bible.

Here heart refers to the center of our thinking which is the seat of all our actions. therefore our thoughts need to be guided appropriately. the best guidance comes from the Bible. so let us read it.

I really needed this verse several months ago. It is true for me a female must guard her heart. Because we are so emotional that are heart sometimes leads us down the wrong path. Guarding my heart is the most important thing.

My heart needs to be protected, it needs that force of prudence and diligence so that i may stay ground and have life in abundance the way it is supposed to be lived

This certainly is a good scripture for relationships. We have to safeguard or protect our heart. Don't follow your heart. The bible says it is treacherous. Protect your heart by reading God's Word, and letting Him influence it.
