Proverbs 15:30b good news makes for good health.
Wow!! No wonder there is all kinds of health issues these days!! Gossip abounds and gossip is always bad news getting even worse with each person that repeats it. The there is the news in the paper and on television...all bad. I remember as a child the news paper having some stories of celebration, some good news. Now news is not news if it is a celebration of something positive. If we want to be healthy we need to make sure that good things are coming from our mouths, and in our ear...and good things are filling our eyes when we read. Good news makes for good health!!
I am going to remember this!! I am going to surround myself with good things... good, wise words, good news. And if I hear bad news...I will do my best to search for the good in the bad and take the good away with me. Then as I live my day out I can dwell on the good. Like the tornado this week... I can walk around thinking, "So many people lost there homes!! What devastation!" or I can choose to think and dwell on, "Look at how much God loves us!! Look at all those lives that are safe and int tact amid such devastation! God is so good!" Then my heart will be happy and my body will be healthy!
