Ask any one of my best friends. They’ll all tell you the same thing…
I love smiles.
In other words, I don’t take them for granted. Smile once when I really need one, and I’ll never, never forget.
I imagine I’m not the only one…
I was just reading today in Christ’s Object Lessons, and I landed on the power of the smile… Did you know that “Kindly affections, [&] generous impulses…are precious talents, and lay their possessor under a weighty responsibility.”?? “All are to be used in God’s service.”*
Kindly affections and generous impulses?? Hmmm… And they’re not just to be distributed to those we know and love. For “the love that gives kindness to only a few is not love, but selfishness.”*
I don’t know about you, but I live in a world that’s starving for kindness.
Don’t let God ever hear you say your talents are small… If you have a smile, you have a weighty responsibility.
Remember that, and smile at a stranger today…
