STOP AND THINK – How things look on the outside of us depends on how things are on the inside of us. (Confucius, 6th century BC Chinese philosopher)

In spite of our efforts to hide our real feelings, it often is too easy for others to recognize how things really are. Our face gives us away, or our body language and behavior do. So, instead of working hard to make ourselves look good, maybe we should spend more time working on the real person, our character and integrity; that will determine how we act—and look.

A happy heart makes the face cheerful, but heartache crushes the spirit (Proverbs 15:13). As water reflects the face, so one’s life reflects the heart (Proverbs 27:19)
