The Power of a Smile (Proverbs 15:30)

with Ron Deal | April 17, 2020

If someone stops smiling you instantly know something is bothering them, right? If the absence of a smile casts a shadow, a genuine smile on someone's face can light up a room. Proverbs 15 says, "A cheerful look brings joy to the heart." A co-worker's smile says, "I'm glad you're part of the team." From a spouse: "I value you in my life." From a parent: "I approve of who you are." And from a stepparent: "I enjoy you and I'm glad we're family." Go ahead. Share a smile and see what joy it brings.
