A cheerful heart has a continual feast. - Proverbs 15:15 HCSB
Cheerfulness is a gift we should give to others and to ourselves. And, as believers who have been saved by a risen Christ, why shouldn't we be cheerful? We have every reason to honor our Savior with joy in our hearts, smiles on our faces and words of celebration on our lips. Don't be a grumpy Christian. Christ promised us lives of abundance and joy if we accept His love and His grace. Yet, sometimes, we let ourselves get caught up in fits of ill temper and frustration. At these times when we don't feel like turning our thoughts and prayers to Christ, we should because that is when we gain perspective and peace. So, be a cheerful Christian. It is the best way to attain the joy that is rightfully yours. How can you achieve this? By giving Christ what is rightfully His: your heart, your soul and your life.
