Looks That Could Kill

My aunt’s vinegary puss set me to laughing. I couldn’t help myself. She didn’t have to say a word. Her face was clear enough!

Expressions cross our face and some are more pleasant than others. Are we hurt, happy, crying, foolish or surprised?  Having a bad hair day or questioning some idea or other?

What if we are sad, mixed up, angry, or talking from both sides of our mouth: think we know it all? Surely we are not pouting, proud or sticking our tongue out?

It would be so wonderful if we kept some of those expressions to ourselves. I don’t think I have to point out which ones.

I, Daniel was deeply troubled by my thoughts, and my face turned pale, but I kept the matter to myself. (Daniel 28:8b, NIV)

Prayer- Father God, may our faces, attitudes and hearts display your peace in the midst of any troubles. Amen
