Subject: January 13th — Daily Devotional by Watchman Nee

Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. Proverbs 4.23.

Even though the spirit is the highest part of man, what really represents him is not his spirit but his heart. We may say that the heart is the real “I”; without question it is the most important thing in our daily living. Proverbs 4.23 means that all fruits which man bears outwardly come from the heart. Such is its significance.

The heart is the passage or channel through which life must operate. It is for this reason that God must first move upon our heart before His life can enter into us. If there be no sorrow of heart or repentance, God’s life will not be able to come in. God has to touch our heart—causing us either to sense the pain of sin or to taste the sweetness of His love and the preciousness of Christ—in order to bring us to repentance.
