'A merry heart does good like medicine' it says in Proverbs 17:22, and that is why I like to buy humorous, yet clean, cards for those I know that are ill. Sometimes some church people look like they have been baptized in lemon juice. We are supposed to have the joy of the Lord. If you are wearing a Christian tee shirt or sporting a bumper sticker make sure to try to crack a smile okay. Be an example and not a deterrent. Learn it is okay to laugh.
Here are a couple clean bits of humor. Hope they make you chuckle.
Did you hear that cars were mentioned in the Bible? Yes "and they were all in one accord." (See Acts 2:1) Ha ha , get it? One Accord as in Honda Accord. Love it!
Here is one not from the Bible but never the less a little funny I think.
' It was not the fall that killed him but the sudden stop.'Ha
This past week I went to a ladies night out event at my church called "Chocolaugh" which consisted of watching a DVD of a female Christian comedian, Anita Renfroe, while we enjoyed chocolate treats. The body of Christ needs to laugh every now and then. There is clean humor.
There may be some denominations falsely taught that for us to laugh is not being reverent and Holy. I beg to differ. Jesus created us and you know the word joy? How can you be joyful if don't put a smile on your face? As a witness for Jesus you probably attract more people if you do not look like you are sad.
So go ahead laugh and show the joy of the Lord.
PRAYER: Father I thank you for the gift of laughter you created but man perverted. Even in scripture it speaks of not being involved in "coarse jesting" which, sad to say, there is plenty of around. (See Ephesians 5;4). Lord Jesus help me learn to smile and laugh and share your love with others. In Jesus' name. Amen.
