A Proverb a Day: Proverbs 14:30 – A word for your health.

A lot of your health begins with your mind. Here is a prescription not many doctors will give you when you visit their offices with an ailment, however if they began to suggest this scripture as treatment, I believe they would be more effective.

A calm and undisturbed mind and heart are the life and health of the body, but envy, jealousy, and wrath are like rottenness of the bones.

Take note to what drives one to rotten bones. Envy, jealousy, and wrath. These three all involve usually a relationship with another human being. People envy others, and desire the things or situations they are in, and their minds and hearts are consumed with how they can get all that another has.

Some get angry with a sibling, a parent, or a spouse and begin to hold a grudge, and again their mind and heart consumed with how they can get even. There is no peace in the mind of a jealous or angry person.

So how do you gain this peace that claims to heal your body? I suggest you think about the goodness of God. Think about all he has provided for you, and be thankful for where you are at the moment. Then forgive those that have wronged you, slighted you, hurt you in any way. Most times they don’t even realize they have done anything, and your mind is controlled by an event that took place years ago.

Be wise.
