Prov 14:30 A sound heart is the life of the flesh: but envy the rottenness of the bones.
Prov 14:30 A peaceful heart leads to a healthy body;
jealousy is like cancer in the bones. NLT
How is your heart today? By the time we make it through “black” Friday, cyber Monday, and take-it Tuesday, we may end up somewhere near weary-and-worried Wednesday. How about planning some time to actually seek peace from God? The “sound” or “peaceful” heart will not automatically come from singing about, “peace on earth and mercy mild,” but it flows from the relationship where “God and sinners, [are] reconciled.” Take some quiet moments of searching a deeper understanding of what the Almighty God really intended to give us in this time of celebrating Jesus’ birth. It most certainly will not be found in the envious battling and beating to buy the best—that leads to “rottenness of the bones.” God’s gift was a human yet divine Savior who could be touched with the feeling of our infirmities and could bear the weight of our sin so we could find redemption and a sound and peaceful heart.
