Message of the Day: Cheering Others Up!
“A man has joy by the answer of his mouth,
And a word spoken in due season, how good it is!” (Proverbs 15:23, NKJV)
Our words can easily cheer others or enrage them, help them or hinder them. Therefore, we should think carefully about what we say (Prov. 15:1-5). Another matter concerning habits of speech is that those who readily criticize others are usually offended when others criticize them. Inner joy enables us to be outwardly cheerful, even amid afflictions. Because we fear God and love others, we are truly contented even though not wealthy (Proverbs 15:13-17).
So, if we bring joy to others we can be assured of God’s goodness to us. However, God opposes those who plot evil and use their positions of power to exploit the poor and the defenseless. A cheerful face, like good news, brings, brings refreshment to others.
