He Who Laughs, Lasts
In summary of Proverbs 17:22 it says, “A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength.”
A joyful heart is good for, but a crushed spirit will dry you up
What this means to me:
Focusing on joy in my life will be much better and healthier for me. Anytime I allow myself to be mentally/emotional/physical worn out will only lead to deterioration. Many probably think that God’s word is filled with “Thou shalt nots,” assuming the Bible is about restrictions and making you lead a boring life. But, having fun is good for your health. God tells me in his Word that life is meant to be enjoyed, not just endured. "A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones." (Proverbs 17:22 NIV) Rick Warren puts it this way, "He who laughs, lasts." So I need to learn to laugh at yourself, and put some play into every day, relax, chill out, have some fun. We’ve been going through some high pressure situations at work. I need to consider ways I can bring some fun back to work for my team.
