A Sound “Healing” Heart

To my surprise, the study of a sound heart from the below proverb shows how sound doctrine is related to obtaining a sound heart and life/healing to the body.

Proverbs 14:30 NKJV
A sound heart is life to the body, but envy is rottenness to the bones.

From Prv 14:30

  • sound heart[04832] = healing, cure, sound (of mind)
    * from [07495] = to heal, make healthful, to cure, make whole
    * sound heart = a healing heart = a heart at peace
    * A healthy spirit is tranquil, bringing peace to the body

Sound heart = Healing heart = Sound mind
=> is tranquil bringing life, peace and healing to the body!

Luke 6:45 AMP
The upright (honorable, intrinsically good) man out of the good treasure [stored] in his heart produces what is upright (honorable and intrinsically good), and the evil man out of the evil storehouse brings forth that which is depraved (wicked and intrinsically evil); for out of the abundance (overflow) of the heart his mouth speaks.

Sound doctrine = Sound (healing)heart = Sound mind
=> Sound speech

Titus 2:1-2 AMP
1 But [as for] you, teach what is fitting and becoming to sound (wholesome) doctrine [the character and right living that identify true Christians]. 2 Urge the older men to be temperate, venerable (serious), sensible, self-controlled, and sound in the faith, in the love, and in the steadfastness and patience [of Christ].

2 Timothy 1:7 AMP
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity (of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear), but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of calm and well-balanced mind and discipline and self-control.

Sound doctrine = Sound (healing)heart = Sound mind
=> Sound speech & Sound judgement
=> Sound life to the body!

Hebrews 5:11-14 AMP
11 Concerning this we have much to say which is hard to explain, since you have become dull in your [spiritual] hearing and sluggish [even slothful in achieving spiritual insight]. 12 For even though by this time you ought to be teaching others, you actually need someone to teach you over again the very first principles of God’s Word. You have come to need milk, not solid food. 13 For everyone who continues to feed on milk is obviously inexperienced and unskilled in the doctrine of righteousness (of conformity to the divine will in purpose, thought, and action), for he is a mere infant [not able to talk yet]! 14 But solid food is for full-grown men, for those whose senses and mental faculties are trained by practice to discriminate and distinguish between what is morally good and noble and what is evil and contrary either to divine or human law.

1 John 4:1 AMP
Beloved, do not put faith in every spirit, but prove (test) the spirits to discover whether they proceed from God; for many false prophets have gone forth into the world.
