Think about it: Does your FACE show your FAITH? Are you generally a positive, pleasant person, but somehow…your face fails to demonstrate that fact? Sometimes, regardless of our personal spiritual beliefs, or our usually pleasant lifestyles, we tend to allow negative feelings show up on our faces!
So here are today’s inspirational thoughts. Remember you can also read Psalms and Proverbs to accompany each day on my page, Daily Scripture Readings.
“Our countenance is simply the way we look.
It refers to our faces.
In the church today,
we need to be concerned
about our countenance.
When the world looks at us,
they need to see something about us
that is different from them.
Christians are supposed to be
joyful people who walk in love.
We must ask ourselves, ‘
Would people know that I am a Christian
by looking at my countenance most of the time?'”
–Joyce Meyer in “New Day New You”
This is one of those “ouch” devotionals–because I know for a fact that I often forget my smile at home when I’m out and about doing errands and shopping, or going to appointments. Ooops!
I have a distant memory of somebody preaching on how a smile can increase our “face value” — and yet, for people who have the “joy of the Lord” inside, we neglect to let our faces know far too often!
So what are YOUR thoughts?
Did this one get your attention?
Do you ever forget to bring YOUR smile when you’re around other people, especially if the cares of this life are weighing you down?
