Topic: Why So Serious? [Open Heavens for Teens 5 September 2019]
Memorise: “He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh:” – Psalms 2:4
Read: Proverbs 17:22
22 A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.
Bible In One Year: Proverbs 7-8, 1 Corinthians 14:31-40
I know that teenagers are generally active and playful, but today we want to address the few ones that are always moody and serious. Dear friend, I don’t know why you always seem moody, but God wants you to be cheerful. As a Christian, if everyone sees you as a moody and unapproachable fellow, do you know that you can make being born again unattractive?
The Holy Bible says that a merry heart doeth good like medicine. Maybe you have been through some hardship, it will difficult for God to heal your broken heart if you decide not to be cheerful. In fact, the medicine for you healing is in your cheerfulness. Let your hair down, laugh, play, join in social and sporting activities. Just be careful not to commit sin while you relax. God loves you and He delights in seeing you smile always.
God wants you to be cheerful.

Praise the Lord for He is kind:
For His mercies shall endure,
ever faithful, ever sure.
2 God, with all-commanding might,
Filled the new-made world with light:
3 All things living He doth feed;
His full hand supplies their need:
4 Let us then with gladsome mind
Praise the Lord, for He is kind:
