It’s a trait unique to humans. I have seen dogs who seem to be able to do it but it is, most likely, an illusion. People from all walks of life can perform this simple task and most do. It’s a sad person who never does this. I have heard that you can fool your enemies with this one simple act, and that you can fool yourself, even, into feeling better. I am talking about a smile.
In the western world, we view the smile as something positive. Some cultures view the smile as something negative. I have a hard time figuring that out. When you see someone smile at you, you usually feel warm, unless the smile seems forced or phony like that of some (well, many) politicians.
I was thinking, if God created mankind in His image and that we are the only created beings of His that can smile, God can smile too.
Do you think God is smiling at you?
Let’s do something good today, so God can smile at us.
