Parcels from the Preacher: June 2, 2023

“Are you giving to the world a smile (sunny smile). Helping lessen someone’s dreary mile (dreary mile). Do you greet the world with song as through life you pass along? Cheering those you may meet along life’s way”

Just a thought, does a Christian smile all the time? I would love to think so, but Scripture does not agree with this most modern principle. In the twelfth of Romans, we are to strive to get along with each other. We are encouraged to pursue righteousness as recorded in the second of Second Timothy. Was Job encouraging us to “fake it, till we make it” in the ninth chapter of the book which nears his name?

I believe Christians are generally happy people; smiles neither relegate this nor deny. Lifting one’s day mainly comes in the words and actions we choose to share with a lost and dying world. This is the example we see with Jesus…He left us the example we should follow and keep in mind no matter how wonderful He was, there were always those who did not care is He smiled or not. Why would it be any different for you or me? Think about it.

Have the day you are meant to have in Christ alone,

Archie R. Green
