VerseD: Proverbs 4:23

Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life.
Proverbs 4:23, ESV

This is not a “know thyself” proverb. This is a “be careful what you think, feel, watch, and listen to” warning and encouragement.

Focus on good and godly things.

VerseD: 2 Corinthians 7:10

For godly grief produces a repentance that leads to salvation without regret, whereas worldly grief produces death.
2 Corinthians 7:10, ESV

We should feel guilty for our sins, and it should produce grief that we “hurt God”. But it is only good grief if we turn from our sin.

It is the difference between Peter and Judas Iscariot.
