STOP AND THINK – If only one could market the cosmetic wonders that an unimpeachable moral conscience can do for one’s face! (Francine Prose, literature professor and author)

It’s often been noted that what a person really is inside will be reflected in his outward appearance as well as in his conduct. The person with an evil spirit and no conscience will usually stand out for his or her hardened visage and bad behavior. It is important, then, to develop our inner character so that we might pursue good deeds to benefit others.

A happy heart makes the face cheerful. . . . A cheerful heart is good medicine (Proverbs 15:13; 17:22).
