A SHARED SMILE
“Let the words of my mouth, and
the mediation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my
strength, and my redeemer.”
When we see something that is funny, we look at our family and friends to
see if they are sharing the laughter with us. Sometimes when the
pastor says something funny in his sermon we look at one another and
I think that God and Jesus look at one another and smile when we do
something that pleases Them. What kind of look are They giving each
other concerning you? Is it a look of happiness or a look of sorrow?
Are you doing and saying things to bring happiness to the Heart of Jesus?
Jesus has done so much for us and asks so little of us. He gave His very
Life for us. His commandments are not that difficult to keep if we
truly love Him as He wants us to love Him.
How about the things you are watching on television and the places you go
and the friends that you have? Is your life bringing a smile to
Jesus' Face, or is it bringing tears? If you could see Jesus in the
flesh sitting right by you, would you continue to do the things that you
I urge you to search your heart and make room for Jesus. He has
suffered enough, let's not hurt Him any more. I know from personal
experience if you will put Jesus first in every area of your life, you
will be happy even in the midst of trials and heartache.
