A Merry Heart

Key Verse

“A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.” Proverbs 17:22

Text — Proverbs 17:17-24


Sandra was so happy when she returned from school one faithful day and found a bundle of clothes and shoes her mom bought for her. Though unexpected, she quickly rushed to the mom and embraced her and was grateful for the gifts. For the rest of the week, Sandra could not contain her joy as she told all her friends what the mom bought for her.

A cheerful heart does good like medicine because it heals every wound and solves many problems. Learn to always be cheerful; do not let the challenges of life or in your family weigh you down; always know that God is in control and will surely deliver you. Also try to make others happy. Be like Sandra’s mom who made her daughter happy with the gifts she bought. There are people around you that need help, they need food and clothes, try to be of help to them and put a smile on their faces and your reward will be great in heaven.
