The cheerful heart enlivened the psalmist David, and likewise the cheerful heart made the earthly life of David's great antitype, Jesus Christ, active. The natural heart also affects the body, just as Proverbs 14:30 says: “A calm heart is the life of the fleshly organism.” The heart of the Greater David, Jesus Christ, could remain calm with a steady heartbeat and blood flow even under provocative circumstances, yes, under persecution and physical mistreatment, up until the time of his impalement. It was only then that he died of a broken heart.—Psalm 69:20.
I love you Papa, you were the best Grandfather I ever had. I hope you and Nanny are having a blast together!
