A Hopeful Heart

A┬áhopeful heart helps to keep you alive, and joy adds length of days. Relax yourself, soothe your heart, and banish anxiety. For sorrow and anxiety have destroyed many lives; they lead to no advantage. Envy and anger shorten one’s life, and anxiety brings old age before its time. A person with a hopeful heart will develop a good appetite, eating the food which helps one survive.

Amen.

Ben Sira
