STOP AND THINK – Nothing repels like a frown—or attracts like a smile. (Charles Swindoll, preacher and author)
It’s a simple statement but one which can be verified by almost everyone’s personal experience. When someone begins to frown while you are speaking to them, you begin to wonder what’s wrong with what you said or how you said it. When they smile, however, you feel like you are communicating well with a friend. It’s heart-warming.
When I smiled at them . . . the light of my face was precious to them (Job 29:24).
