Proverbs 4:22 says that I must de diligent to keep a pure heart for from it flows the wellspring of life. The game plan for this starts with my speech. Am I being honest about my struggles? Am I speaking to other women in a way that glorifies God and my wife? Another important component is my eyes. Are they gazing directly ahead at my wife and seeing her for the blessing she is or am I looking elsewhere in a discontented manner. Lastly I must consider where I am going. Do I go to God for fulfillment or am I looking to the world to satisfy me? There is a narrow path I am called to and it is a path off righteousness that is paved by intentionality. If I am intentional about keeping my marriage vows I will pursue to be right in all of ways, thoughts and actions.

Keep your heart with all vigilance,
for from it flow the springs of life.
Put away from you crooked speech,
and put devious talk far from you.
Let your eyes look directly forward,
and your gaze be straight before you.
Ponder the path of your feet;
then all your ways will be sure.
Do not swerve to the right or to the left;
turn your foot away from evil.

(Proverbs 4:23-27 ESV)
