All the days of the afflicted are evil, But he who is of a merry heart has a continual feast (Proverbs 15:15, NKJV). When a person is on the short end of peace and on the long end of aggravation, a depressing spirit begins to settle in. Even if the afflicted one is very even-keel in temperament, an assignment of “that’s just the way it is” encourages one to look upon life with the lenses of a “half-empty” glass. On the other hand for the one not afflicted, but spiritually affluent (wealthy) in the experiences life, the glass is only half full. The prospects are great. The challenge for this one is for him (her) to help the other overcome the disposition of a half-empty perspective. Not easy, but important. The cup from which you drink – how do you view it? RT
