Take My Coat, TooPosted: March 29, 2008
This goes to show how far a smile can get you. It’s tough consistently being nice to people, isn’t it? Not that I propose to be nice at all, but in a world where you expect reciprocal reactions, it’s always tough to be dishing out the smiles, when all you get in return is a blank stare or even worse, a one finger salute. But what I often forget is that it’s better to give than to receive and even in the most extreme case it is wisdom that the Bible teaches in Proverbs 25:21-22,
If your enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat,
and if he is thirsty, give him water to drink,
for you will heap burning coals on his head,
and the Lord will reward you.
