How do we guard the heart?

1. Have the right treasure

Matthew 6:19-21

Proverbs 23:5 and 6 Material things have wings.

2. Maintain a single eye

Matthew 6:22 and 23 When our eye is single (focused on one thing), we will see one thing. If our main focus is God and the things of God, then God will be in our lives and manifested from our lives.

Psalms 1:1-6 Read the Bible - read the entire book at least once in 2006.

3. Do not serve two masters

Matthew 6:24 We cannot serve God and the world. The devil gets people to think that they can. God wants our whole heart, soul, mind, and strength. He wants undivided loyalty.

Ephesians 6:5 and 6

4. Seek the Kingdom of God first

Luke 12:13-34 God will care for you now and in the end.
