Inviting, welcomed, appreciated and valued are all words I think of when I see someone smile. How often do we smile at others? More importantly, what is behind the smile? Psalm 51:12 is a verse that talks about David wanting to have the joy of His salvation restored. The more we make ourselves available to grow closer to God through Christ to quench our heart's thirst, the joy of our salvation will bubble up in the most wonderful, warm, genuine and contagious smile.
"February 23, 1834 - Sabbath - Rose early to seek God and found Him whom my soul loveth. Who would not rise early to meet such company?" (M'Cheyne's journals)
"Everyone you meet matters to God, and everything they've experienced is preparing them to meet Him. You can make the introduction that makes the difference." (Daily Wisdom for Men: 2019 Devotional Collection)
"When a person is at peace with who they are and, ultimately, with God, they are then poised to make disciples." (Generational Disciple-Making by George Robinson)
