(Pro 4:21 KJV) Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.
Our spiritual lives are made up of many decisions, just like the rest of life. The previous verses are loaded with instructions and warnings. Here we are reminded that we must remain vigilant. Sometimes we get so into the concept of grace and the sovereignty of God that we get sloppy and zoned out. We have all experienced it when driving. You have those moments where you suddenly realize you have not been paying attention. You have been driving on autopilot.
That is bad enough but what about the times when you are checking your phone or your I-pod and the car in front of you suddenly stops. That kind of thing can happen in your ethical and moral life too.
So? Keep focused. Keep the word of God in front of our eyes. Find ways to remind yourself during the day.
