"If I say, I will forget my complaint. I will put off my sad face and wear a smile.” (Job 9:27)

Today, we are going to examine the word "smile" and how it relates to the practical and biblical principles for "Spiritual" growth. In essence, "smile" is the expression of one’s countenance. Smile is further defined as to express amusement, pleasure, moderate joy or love, and kindness, by the features of the face; To laugh silently; To express slight contempt by a look implying sarcasm or pity; Sneer; To look gay and joyous; To have an appearance suited to excite joy; Smiling spring; Smiling plenty; To be propitious or favorable; To favor; To smile consent; To smile a welcome to visitors; To affect in a certain way with a smile; The act of smiling; A peculiar change or brightening of the face; An indication of satisfaction combined with malevolent feelings, as contempt, derision or scorn--scornful smile; Superficial appearance—show, pretense; and The expressions of the mouth involving the eyes.

In the business world, it is called "consent," the approval or disapproval of behaviors representing the organization foundational principles. A key leadership ability in building a “healthy” culture for sustainability globally. The "smile" is a direct connection between "consent" in the aptitude of competence to build sustainable relationships, not comprising oneself identity or integrity. The "smile" has both a negative and positive approach known by the genuineness with evidence in the character, communication, moral state, actions, control mechanism, and overall health.

In the context of the scripture, Job, known as “Suffering Job” in his plight, left on record for all people and leadership the importance of knowing when to smile, the choice to smile, and the effect of a smile unveiling the “heart” of a person. For instance, personally, I call this, "The-Diversity-To-Overcome-To-Produce-Life." It is the “State of Mind” of being diverse in an adverse socioeconomic stratum to overcome the fear to live. Taking the “Key of Humility” to unlock faith over fear; producing the heart of life. Thought to ponder: "The genuineness of a smile unfolds the depth of a person; unveiling the intent of the heart." It is an in-depth ability to know and look beyond the glass mirror into the depth of one’s spirit from the countenance of a smile. This is the crossroad to accept or reject the unveiling and intent of a person. This disposition has the spirit of life versus death, to produce life. At this level, the genuineness unveils truth on multiple levels.

What lessons can be learned about "Smile" and "Consent?" There are five (5) important lessons. Discovering the "Truth" in "Know," "How," and "What Smile?"

Lessons Learned About Smile and Consent

  1. Know a true “smile” takes the “Spirit” of humility. Separating one’s own importance in life, to produce, and transform life. How will I refine myself? Is it for the good or bad? "What Smile," can people see across culture boundaries? Is it a countenance of life or death? (Humility Leadership and Transformation Design Questionnaire)
  2. Know a person's character is unveiled through the genuineness of a "smile" revealing the intent of the heart overtime. Marking the validity of the “heart” of a person. How is my character being molded through change? Is it good or bad? "What Smile," of honesty does my countenance unveil within my circle of influences and outside of my circle of influences? Is it honor or dishonor. Heed the warning signs. (Reputation & Honesty Diagram and Anatomy of Smile)
  3. Know you have a choice to “smile” to overcome a spirit of fear, depression, and hate through life adversity. Fear diminishes hope. Therefore, if the fear is not controlled, worth in life becomes null. How will I humble myself to hear God’s Wisdom in all sincerity to live? "What Smile," can people see and feel from me? “What Smile,” do I see in people? Past and Present. Is it life or death? Have I let people take my smile of life and joy away because of hate, arrogance, control, and jealously? Will I let myself smile again from this adversity? Heed the warning signs. (Self-Evaluation and There Is Magic In Your Smile)
  4. Know the transformation of a smile has multiple levels, but it is the level of the “smiling heart” that unveils the depth of a person. The smile has the ability not only to show kindness at the first level in action; faith at the second level; it releases true love in action through the Spirit at the third level. Now, the flipside, a contempt or scornful smile, can only show kindness to a certain extent, at which point, the neuro chemicals releases the opposite imbalances to the brain and well-being of a person. How is my mind, body, and spirit overall health? Is it good or bad? Is it honor or dishonor? "What Smile,” do I see from the reflection in the mirror? Can I reach deep into my heart to produce life over death? Will I seek the necessary help if needed to live? Heed the warning signs. (Self-Evaluation and Neurotransmitters-Nervous System)
  5. Truth is always revealed in a person's inward part with a transparency light in the “smile” to produce life or death. Know a smile can heal or kill. Determined by the intent of the “heart.” Know it will take more than a psychosis measure of treatment, it will take a humble submission to God’s restoration power to transform to live in purpose, according to biblical principles. How is the smile? "What Smile," humility cry out, change to live!  “What Smile,” persistence cry out, change the will! “What Smile,” courage cry out, preserve life!  “What Smile,” vision cry out, produce life! “What Smile,” dignity cry out, I must transform integrity, to change life! (Stair-Steps of Transformation)

In closing, know the genuineness of a "smile" unfolds the depth of a person; Know a “smile” unveils the intent of the heart; Know a true “smile” has a Spirit of humility to produce life. Know a person’s “character” is unveiled through the genuineness of a smile. Know the transformation of a “smile” has multiple levels, but it is the level of the “smiling heart” that unveils the depth of a person. Know you have a choice to "smile" in life or surrender to fear through adversity. Know “smile” has the ability to produce total wellness not only in oneself, but in other people. Know your "smile" will be either an agent of healing or hurting. Know the “Will of the Spirit” to live, resurrects from death to life; to produce life. Know you are not a product of the environment, you are not a product of life trails, and you are not a product of people. Remember, an environment of life is a progressive climate and culture of growth. Change your environment if needed. Change your view if needed. Change your smile if needed. Speak life, grow, and lead! "You Have Value!" "You Have Worth!" "You Have Purpose!" "What Smile Do You Have?" Smile, life, hope, faith, and love! Let it be in your actions—no strings attached!
