Some of us have a nice and natural smile. Some smile awkwardly when they do. Others never smile in public at all.
Some of us truly laugh from the heart. Others laugh pretentiously while their eyes tells you a different story. And the rest do not laugh at all.
I enjoy watching the children smiling. They are really natural and carefree.
I enjoy hearing the children laughing. They come from the heart.
And I enjoy talking and listening to children. They are so true and sincere.
And I believe what Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." (Matthew 19:14)
So the next time you are in the crowd, learn to be sincere and true and learn to speak from your heart. It will make a whole lot of difference and the world needs it badly.
But I sigh and shake my head every time I look at the crowd, noticing how very pretentious and egocentric we are... .
