Proverbs 15:30 A cheerful look brings joy to the heart; good news makes for good health.
Contentment and happiness are not really the same. Happiness is usually brought about by outside circumstances. For example...You received a good grade, won some money,asked out on a date with someone you like. Contentment is more internal and does not depend on day to day circumstances. Contentment comes from a mature faith. We know sometimes things will not go our way and difficult circumstances may arise but, we can still be content knowing God loves us and will help us work out our situation. We can also do a great deal to help others with their attitudes. We could be like the guy in the picture. Everyone is drawn to people ( and animals) that smile. We avoid those who scowl. Try it today Make a conscious effort to smile at folks and you will brighten up both your day and theirs.
