For those of us who have pets, we know that they are loyal to us and give us these looks that make our heart tender.  They are a joy to us and give us companionship.

 

There is One who gives us looks of Love, Peace, Joy, Happiness, and Faithfulness.  Jesus gives us these looks through other people.  He has not been here for over two thousand years.  He has left us to spread His looks of Love.

 

When others look at you, what do they see?  Do they see a grouchy person with a bad attitude who dares others to smile at them?  Jesus wants us to smile with Joy and Love at others. 

 

I have a parakeet that is a gift from God, who fills me with joy every day and brings me happiness.  Sometimes however, I get irritable if I am not feeling good and take it out on her.

 

 God never gets irritable with us.  He never takes anything out on us.  He remains Faithful and Loyal no matter how we treat Him. Letís start giving others a look of Love that will warm and encourage them.
