{Proverbs 17:22; NLT}

A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength.

So feeling is essential to life.  We must accept this and work with it.  And you can be sure that harmful feeling, feeling associated with evil—arising from it or producing it—will eventually be taken by a human being as better than no feeling at all. Healthy feelings, properly ordered among themselves, are essential to a good life.  So if we are to be formed in Christlikeness, we must take good care of our feelings and not just let them “happen.”

Dallas Willard, Renovation of the Heart, p. 121
