As you see people it is amazing how you can look at someone and know how their day is going. Try it! People deal with so much but rather than telling the truth of how they feel they just say everything is good. The real question is should we be worried about how we are looking or feeling or not giving the person a chance to feel the same way after they walk by?
There are some people that I know whenever I run into them I feel refreshed! I feel like I have been renewed in spirit. Paul talks about a final greeting in the following passage:
Finally, brothers and sisters, rejoice! Strive for full restoration, encourage one another, be of one mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you. Greet one another with a holy kiss. All God’s people here send their greetings. May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. 2 Corinthians 13:11-14(NIV)
When you greet someone do they walk away feeling restoration, encouragement, one minded, and peace? Do you greet everyone like it is going to be the last time? Next time you walk by a stranger, smile and say hello! Next time you see someone you know smile, greet them like you love them, and make a difference in everyone’s life you come in contact with! Will you do this?
