Over the years, I've heard people say that if you want to be lazy you need to learn to smile as it takes less muscles than to frown.
I can give you seven scriptural reasons why you should smile.
# 1 You’re uglier when you frown.
I have no scriptural basis for this reason. . .just the opinion of someone who has literally met hundreds of thousands of people in his life.
Hears a revelation for you: Even ugly people look better when they smile.
# 2 God smiles. . .so you should too.
Numbers 6:25 in the God’s WORD translation says:
“The Lord will smile on you and be kind to you.”
# 3 When you smile. . .the Lord sends blessings your way.
Numbers 6:25-26 in the New Living Translation says:
“May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you. May the Lord show you his favor
and give you his peace.”
# 4 When you smile. . .mercy comes your way.
Psalm 31:16 in God’s WORD translation says:
“Smile on me. Save me with your mercy.”
# 5 God is smiling on you. . .when you’re learning His Word.
Psalm 119:135 in God’s WORD translation says:
“Smile on me, and teach me your laws.”
# 6 When you’re down and out. . .God can make you smile again.
Psalm 43:5 in The Living Bible says:
“O my soul, why be so gloomy and discouraged? Trust in God! I shall again praise him for his wondrous help; he will make me smile again, for he is my God!”
# 7 When you smile. . .favor is in your life.
