Sometimes, children and families who walk through the doors of our church walk in carrying heavy burdens. Marriage issues, family dynamics, and financial pressures can take a toll on those we serve each week. While we cannot always lift those burdens, there is one very easy way that we can bring them a little joy: SMILE!
Genesis 33 tells the story of Jacob and Esau reconciling after Jacob stole Esau’s birthright (see Genesis 27). Upon their meeting, Jacob says to his brother, “..what a relief it is to see your friendly smile. It is like seeing the smile of God!” (Genesis 33:10)
Someone might see God through your smile this week. So go ahead and SMILE!
