Proverbs 15:13-14 (NKJV) 13 A merry heart makes a cheerful countenance, But by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken. 14 The heart of him who has understanding seeks knowledge, But the mouth of fools feeds on foolishness.

Laughter, good cheer, and joy can do wonders for your health. And the healthier you are the longer you live. A merry heart brings a smile to your face. But pessimism puts a frown on your face. And you actually have to work harder to put on a frown. Really, it takes more facial muscles to frown than it is to smile. A negative outlook on life has deeper effects on a person, both mentally and physically. Doubt causes hopelessness and anguish. It breaks one’s spirit. Take time to laugh, my friend, for a merry heart makes a cheerful countenance. And a heart that seeks spiritual discernment, will find joy.

God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
