Joy, Humor, Laughter and A Merry Heart
Yes, the world is not a peaceful or blissfully happy place—quite the opposite. But, “NEWS FLASH!” it has been that way since the evil one began to dominate the hearts of men. This was the world that Jesus entered into at His birth. A world of evil, cruelty, ungodliness, violence, destruction and death reigned on the earth.
But even in the midst of all these there is a joy of the Lord that we can have and a sense of well-being and good humor that can strengthens us. There is a merry heart that does good like a medicine.
“A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.” Proverbs 17:22
Laughter and merriment are pathways to becoming as little children which we must become to enter the kingdom of Heaven.
"And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven." Matthew 18:3
Even after weeping in the night joy comes in the morning.
“Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh.” Luke 6:21
Now there is nothing particularly spiritual about this video but it made me laugh big time. Hope you can laugh with it too.
Laughter is good for the soul.
