Proverbs 17 - A Joyful Heart

We just learned about Proverbs 16 - Wisdom better than Gold.

Another chapter in the book of Proverbs is Proverbs 17.

This chapter gives all sorts of good advice about listening to each other, being happy, and being wise.

Better is a dry morsel with quiet than a house full of feasting with strife.
This means that it's better to be poor and not have much to eat, but have a house with family and friends that are nice to you, than to be rich and all the food you want but all of your family and friends are crazy and mean.

A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.
This means if you are happy all the time, your body will feel good.
If you are sad all the time your body will feel bad.
