Life is like a mirror—we get the best results when we smile at it. (Inspirational line)

It’s very likely that most people start the day with a look in the mirror. It isn’t always a pleasant view, of course—sleep wrinkles, tangled up hair, bleary eyes. Like so many other things in life, however, it’s not the first view (or words or thoughts), but the response to them that’s so important. Take the positive look, smile, and see how the day turns out.

Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like (James 1:23-24).
