The soldier’s breastplate was custom-made—molded to fit his chest and stomach and purposed to protect all the vital organs. The primary concern with the breastplate was the heart. It’s the same in the spiritual sense. Spiritually speaking, the heart is the control center of our life. It is the center of our thoughts, emotions, desires, and actions. When we say, “My heart is heavy”, we are saying that something in my life—thinking, feeling, actions—is weighing me down. When I say “I love you with all my heart”, I am saying that my whole being—my thoughts, emotions, desires, and actions—are all about you.
Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life.
We are to guard our hearts with the breastplate of righteousness.
