Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.
Just as you committed to being the protector of her heart, you must guard your own with the same vigilance. Love yourself fully, love the world openly, but there is a special place in your heart where no one must enter except for your wife. Keep that space always ready to receive her and invite her in, and refuse to let anyone or anything else enter there.
To “guard” our hearts means to protect and defend what is going on inside of you (your emotions). Never allow your emotions for your spouse to get corrupted. Guard it like precious treasure. Be watchful for any temptations or distractions that want to steer you away from your special place.
