“A joyful heart is good medicine,
but a broken spirit dries up the bones.”
Proverbs 17 : 22
Paul knew the power in having a good attitude
when he wrote in – Philippians 4 : 8 –
“And now, my friends, all that is true,
all that is noble, all that is just and pure,
all that is lovable and gracious,
whatever is excellent and admirable –
fill all your thoughts with these things.”
Again and again experience and now even science,
has proved that people can improve their health
by change of attitude.
“Between the mind and the body
there is a mysterious and wonderful relation.
They react upon each other.”
Norman Cousins, former editor of Review of Literature,
had a serious and potentially fatal disease.
When the doctor’s could not help him-
he began taking the “merry heart”
medicine described in our text.
He secured all the humorous books that he could find
and concentrated on making himself laugh.
After recovering he claimed that he had
-laughed himself to health.
If laughter had a positive effects as this –
what will it do in the life of a Christian,
who has additional resources-?
Such as the quiet spirit of “gratitude and praise”
that center on Jesus?
A true Christian has many good reasons to be –
HAPPY IN THE LORD!-
WISHING YOU A BLESSED SABBATH…
