Happy Friday, and welcome to your daily dose of joy, courtesy of Proverbs 17:22 (NLT).
In today’s reading, you will learn how kindness is one of the best gifts you can give yourself. Not only is it free, but it’s also abundantly available, just waiting for you to make it a part of your daily routine.
A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength.
As you can see, God wants you to remember that being happy and kind to yourself is life-giving.
By the way, today is International Happiness Day, so be sure to (also) send prayers to your brothers and sisters in China, Italy, Australia, and wherever coronavirus is running wild.
