Dale Carnegie in his classic book, How to Win Friends and Influence People, devotes an entire chapter to the importance of smiling. When we smile at others we make a huge impression.
I received more than I bargained for on one occasion when a church member and friend asked me to be a character reference for him in a child custody hearing. I thought it would just be a chance to answer some questions and share a bit about my friend. The attorney for the other party yelled frequently and threw his arms in the air. Sometimes he got very close to those on the witness stand. He had a bully mentality and he was quite a threatening figure. I dreaded being called to the stand but soon it
was my turn to testify what I knew. I was a young man then and I was indeed intimidated. The court reporter, who took my affirmation that I would tell the truth, looked me square in the eye and then she did something wonderful. She smiled! It cost her nothing and it only lasted a few seconds, but that kind action changed my outlook on this court hearing. I relaxed and was confident. I was on the stand for a long time and endured some oppositional behavior, but I maintained my cool.
A smile is inviting. A smile enriches the lives of others. It happens quickly but the memory of it may last forever. It brings light to those whose lives are dark, direction to others who cannot find their way, goodness to people who are entrapped in evil and hope for those who may be hopeless.
Paul teaches in Titus 2:10, “Their good character shine though actions, adding luster to the teachings of our Savior God (Titus 2:10, The Message Paraphrase). One of the greatest ways to spread the gospel is to live it. Other versions say we are to make the gospel attractive. A smile is one way to radiate his love. It is quite simple but powerfully profound. Let others see the radiance of the Lord alive in you. Smile!
