Care in the heart of a man makes it weighted down, but a good word makes it glad.
A glad heart makes a shining face, but by the sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.
The spirit of a man will be his support when he is ill; but how may a broken spirit be lifted up?
Come, take your bread with joy, and your wine with a glad heart. God has taken pleasure in your works.
Through whom, in the same way, we have been able by faith to come to this grace in which we now are; and let us have joy in hope of the glory of God.

When I kept my mouth shut, my bones were wasted, because of my crying all through the day.
2 Corinthians 2:7
So that now, on the other hand, it is right for him to have forgiveness and comfort from you, for fear that his sorrow may be over-great.
2 Corinthians 7:10
For the sorrow which God gives is the cause of salvation through a change of heart, in which there is no reason for grief: but the sorrow of the world is a cause of death.
