The Witness of Our Countenance
I was deep in thought as I considered a discussion in church. Later, a friend said, “You weren’t smiling during that discussion.”
My countenance revealed the truth inside of me like this scripture from the Old Testament:
The shew of their countenance doth witness against them. Isaiah 3:9
Every man and every person who lives in this world wields an influence, whether for good or for evil. It is not what he says alone; it is not alone what he does. It is what he is. Every man, every person radiates what he or she really is . . . It is what we are and what we radiate that affects the people around us.
David O. McKay
from Man May Know for Himself
I hope I will radiate the depth in me that reaches beyond just a smile on the surface.
