25 Anxiety weighs down the heart, but a kind word cheers it up.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Proverbs 12:25

Commentary on Proverbs 12:25

(Read Proverbs 12:25)

Care, fear, and sorrow, upon the spirits, deprive men of vigour in what is to be done, or courage in what is to be borne. A good word from God, applied by faith, makes the heart glad.
