I am in the middle of a book titled “Born to Run.” It is about the Raramuri people in Mexico who are some of the best ultrarunners in the world. Most of the time when I see runners, they are gritting their teeth, bearing down and making a push for the front. One of the many secrets for the Raramuri is that they just love to run so they always have smiles on their faces.

So I began to look at people around me. It is generally predictable about who loves life and is really living it to the fullest – they have smiles on their faces.

Consider your own facial expressions this week, notice those of others. Perhaps if someone is not smiling you can give out a smile just to brighten their day.

Makes me wonder about what facial expression Jesus had as he ministered.
