2 Corinthians 9:7
“So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.” 1. START WITH A SMILE
“A merry heart makes a cheerful countenance,”
Begin every day by smiling at yourself in the mirror. Get yourself happy. Then read God’s mirror – His word to find God’s smile. Cheer comes from within. And then smile at everyone and everything throughout your day.
2. GET RID OF YOUR BILE
Bitterness in your belly always surfaces during your day.
A bitter spirit is seen in the following.
Take time to deal with your belly of bile – and then replace it with a smile.
Remember – a merry heart does good – like a medicine. Proverbs 17:22
3. GO THE EXTRA MILE
People who smile go the extra mile.
Don’t do anything grudgingly or of necessity.
People don’t want your grudging contribution – they want your cheerful contribution.
Be the person who brings the spirit of cheer.
4. BUILD UP YOUR PILE
A smile is the clearest indication of the presence of God.
In His presence is fulness of joy.
Smile as though you have just heard from God.
A cheerful heart will give you strength to build your world and fill it with good things.
Be a builder of better things – and be of good cheer – for the Lord is with you.
