What causes a heavy heart? If you live long enough, you know there are lots of things in life that can cause us depression. In the Book of Proverbs, the author points to anxiety as one of the sources of causing a heavy heart.
Interestingly, a kind word will cheer a heavy heart, and we all can be that person of saying a kind word to a heavyhearted person.
Let’s ponder the reminder of Proverbs 12:25.
25Anxiety weighs down the heart, but a kind word cheers it up. (Proverbs 12:25 NIV)
Let’s pose a question to God. “Dear God, could You give me the opportunity of bringing a kind word to those with heavy hearts?”
Let’s practice what you learnt. Pray that you can bring a kind word to those with heavy hearts.
Let’s proclaim to others about your experiential knowledge. After a small group meeting, share your experience of bringing a kind word to those with heavy hearts with the participants.
