A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones
Solomon, who wrote this wonderful book of Proverbs and the beautiful love story of Song of Solomon, also penned the miserable minutia of Ecclesiastes. So we see a man of great wealth, power, prestige, and pedigree can also be a man of great sorrow, seclusion, sadness, and servility (enslaved). How a man acts in public is seldom an indication of how a man thinks in private.
This man is sad inside, but he is acting happy in front of people. The hypocrisy of his mirth leads to more misery.
The heart is our meditator. Thus we conclude that the poor soul that pretends to be content is dwelling on bad. He is thinking thoughts that are rewarding him with compounded sadness. To find the origin of this sorrow, you look at the reciprocal result of this man’s lifestyle: the end of this mirth is heaviness.
That is a dejection of the mind. Our heart only meditates on chosen thoughts that are stored in the mind. We reach up to the computer hard drive of the mind and consciously choose what we are going to think. We place it in the heart and we dwell on those thoughts. Those thoughts can build us up if they are true, honest, or just. Or, those thoughts can bring us down if they are the opposite.
A Merry Heart Doeth Good Like A Medicine
Good thoughts lead to good feelings. Good feelings lead to a merry heart. A “merry heart doeth good like a medicine.” But bad thoughts lead to bad feelings. And bad feelings lead to a broken spirit and a “broken spirit drieth the bones.” You need to forsake that type of stinkin’ thinkin’!
Sad hearts fake it till they make it. Merry hearts forsake it till they make it.
