Dude, what are you smiling about?
I just flipped on the TV on the elliptical machine at Anytime Fitness when the local midday news displayed a picture of a man arrested for something. I don’t know what. I wasn’t listening. I don’t usually watch. I was on my way to the NFL Network. Much more important matters. The draft is coming up.
Anyway, this dude was flashing a big toothless grin like he was posing for a family portrait. He’s about to be introduced to a new family, but not one to smile about.
Update his status in a couple of weeks.
Then I thought about those of us who really have something (or Someone) to smile about.
Jesus. King of Glory Prince of Peace.
And His best name…Savior.
Where are all the smiles?
