It is Christmas every time you smile at your brother and offer him your hand. (Mother Teresa)

Christmas is still two weeks away, but Mother Teresa’s advice is good not only for the next two weeks but all year long. This special holiday brings a lot of joy to many people, but there are many others who don’t have much to look forward to, and they need someone to encourage them and lift up their spirits. Get in the habit of smiling, and you’ll bring joy to a lot of people.

When they were discouraged, I smiled at them. My look of approval was precious to them. (Job 29:24)
