If you are anything like me, sometimes you might find it hard to smile. With the constant division and challenges life throws our way it is easy to get mixed up in the negative emotions our culture fosters. Proverbs 17:22 says "a cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones". The footnotes of my bible describe this verse further by stating, "To be cheerful is to be ready to greet others with a welcome, a word of encouragement, an enthusiasm for the task at hand, and a positive outlook on the future. Such people are as welcome as pain-relieving medicine". Isn't that so true? I know that I'm encouraged by positivity and kind hearted people, and it brightens my day. Just think of the impact you can have on others by simply wearing a smile. This week when the world makes you want to scowl, give the world a smile instead.
