Cheerfulness and contentment are great beautifiers and are famous preservers of youthful looks.
Thought to be by Charles Dickens
Being cheerful and content isn’t exactly my speciality, but I am working on it.
Science has proven that people who are cheerful and content live longer, and get more enjoyment out of life then people who are cranky.
We are supposed to be fishers of men, but in order to be a good fisher you must give the fish bait that they actually like. It is the same with fishing for humans. If your attitude is cheerful the people listening to you may start to wonder what you have, that they don’t.
If your attitude is nasty, they will think that they will become like you if they become a Christian, and they don’t want to do that.
So please be as realistically cheerful as possible. It is better for your health, your looks, and your witness.
