Proverbs of a 36 yr old man
The life of the body is a heart at peace. If your mind is content, your body will be strong. But if you allow emotions like envy to hide in your heart, or jealousy to fester in your mind, it will physically affect you. The word of God calls it a rotting of your bones. Think about this, just with regular decomposition bones take a long time to dissolve. Even in the best of environments it still may take years. Imagine this kind of rottening in your heart and mind happening everyday. No wonder people are hurting so much, they are slowly and painfully rotting away inside. Evil desires zap our vigor for life, and we bear it's consequences on our bodies. Let's choose to heal our souls by practicing righteousness. Living for Jesus so that we can receive healing from all the bone bruises of sin. Healing of your bones is much quicker than rotting away. Bone generally takes six to twelve weeks to heal to a significant degree. A healed heart is life to our flesh. Let's allow Christ to live in us and be at peace with God and man.
