Aug 19 Devotion: A Medicine To Others

A Medicine To Others

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

Ever had that bad day and just really need cheered up, or even a word of encouragement? Each one of us can experience days or even weeks where it just seems we are just completely up against it! Times when it feels as if everything we do turns bad, and we just can’t seem to catch a break. These are times when it’s good to have that friend we can turn to that has the ability to cheer us up. A friend that can look at us and just know that we need some encouragement.

Now, what about you being that friend? Can we do be that same person for others? A merry heart means we can be cheerful upon meeting others. We can meet others with an uplifting spirit and offer words of encouragement. Having a merry heart can help someone have a more positive outlook on their future when all seems lost! If you are down the last thing you need is someone to come along and discourage you, or to make things even bleaker. In turn you also shouldn’t want to be that type of person to others.

If you are in that dark spot today then seek out that merry heart. If God has blessed you today to be that merry heart then be attentive to those around you that may need that encouragement!

God bless you today!
