Today's thought has to be obvious. Smiles. We've all heard the cliches forever, but it's true. A smile costs us nothing, but does so much for this world when we give them away! We literally FEEL BETTER when we choose to smile. Making that choice is often the first step to moving from feeling bad to pretty ok. This life can be so hard and lonely, it's very likely that if you adopt an attitude of smiling at people, you might be used by God to lighten someone's load for a bit. That may be the only connection they make with another person that day. How sad if you were just to self-centered or lazy to just flash that person a simple smile.

Remember, if we wear the name of Christ (Christian), we are His ambassadors in this world. We are to conform our behavior and attitudes to the example He left for us in His life and teachings in the Bible. We are His witnesses to a lost and dying world. Is this mission served better by scowls and frowns or by smiles? Which shows that you have something in your life that they would be wise to pursue themselves?

  • "Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God." 2 Corinthians 5:20
  • "Sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence" 1 Peter 3:15
  • "I solemnly charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by His appearing and His kingdom: Preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires, and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths. But you, be sober in all things, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry." 2 Timothy 4:1-5

    I love your papers and that gumball is adorable!!! Thank you!

    I love today's thought for the day. I used to work at "a very large corporation" and stress was always high. I was known as "Smiley" because I was always smiling at people even when I didn't feel like it, LOL. I just knew that people responded so much better to a happy person. I have to say, it got me a lot of promotions that I wouldn't have gotten except that I was noticed for my "happy" disposition. Have a great day :::smile:::
