30 A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.
The wise king Solomon talks about the condition of one's heart and emotions and the effect it has on the body. A peaceful heart allows a person to be happy and they have life in their body and it even shows on the face. Yet one whose heart is filled with envy and unhappiness not only destroys the heart but it begins to weigh on the body, the mind and destroys a person from the inside out. Jesus said what comes out of the mouth is in the heart. So eventually what is in the heart begins to come forth. If a heart is peaceful then the words will be soft and full of life. If the heart is filled with envy then the words are filled with anger and hatred. The anger and hatred however are misdirected. Envy is defined by Merriam-Webster's Dictionary as a painful or resentful advantage one has over another. The anger or hatred is often because one has failed to apply themselves and instead of the person being upset with their own lack of movement to the point they are motivated to move forward, they remain stuck and focus on the person who is moving. This anger or hatred eats away at the person it consumes til they destroy themselves. As you move forward in life, it always better to be happy for others. The Word says that we are to rejoice with our brothers and mourn with them. We are to rejoice in their happiness and mourn with them in their sorrow. So rejoice when one you know moves forward because that means you have the ability to move forward as well if you are willing to apply yourself.
"Men are anxious to improve their circumstance yet unwilling to improve themselves. They therefore remain bound." ~James Allen

Luke 23:4242Then he said, "Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom."
The thief's humility is exactly what it takes for us to come to Jesus. There needs to be enough humility to say you have been wrong, made wrong choices, that you don't have all the answers. And when you do, no matter what you have done, even the most horrible of crimes, you can say to Jesus, "remember me." And Jesus, our Lord and Savior, King of kings and Lord of Lords will remember you and take you in.
