Proverbs 12:25 - An anxious heart...

NIV An anxious heart weighs a man down,
but a kind word cheers him up.
KJV Heaviness in the heart of man maketh it stoop: but a good word maketh it glad.
NASB Anxiety in a man's heart weighs it down,
But a good word makes it glad.
Proverbs 12:25


God tells us to cast all our cares on Him (1 Pet. 5:7) and not to be anxious (Phil. 4:6). Yet how uplifting it is in the midst of a trial to hear a word of encouragement! Encouragement stirs up, provokes, incites people in a given direction.

1 Corinthians 6:17 - who unites himself with the Lord is one with Him

NIV But he who unites himself with the Lord is one with him in spirit.
KJV But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.
NASB But the one who joins himself to the Lord is one spirit with Him.
1 Corinthians 6:17


One Spirit suggests the highest possible unity between the believer and the Lord. The sheep may wander from the shepherd, the branch may be cut off from the vine, the member may be severed from the body, the child alienated from the father, and even the wife from the husband, but when two spirits blend in one, nothing can part them.
