“All the days of the afflicted are evil: but he that is of a merry heart hath a continual feast”–Proverbs 15:15

     I certainly agree that we have much to be concerned over during these turbulent, wavering times; but in spite of all the heralded doom and gloom, the church needs to reclaim its joy. Sometimes I wonder if people resist salvation simply because of their fear of becoming like the calloused and miserable Christians they encounter from week to week. Hypocrisy at its greatest height is to tell others of the sufficiency of Christ while wearing a frown on our face.

I wonder, do you laugh very often?

I asked myself that question the other day, and to be honest, I was not pleased with the answer. I laugh, but not as much as I should. I want to laugh more. I am not talking about silliness or dim-witted jesting; I am talking about good, clean, hearty, knee-slapping laughter. If laughter is not a part of your life it should be.

Laughter is biblical, it is free, it provides escape, it produces joy, it is infectious, it is healthy, it feeds the soul, and it strengthens relationships. So go ahead and try it. Laugh out loud right now and see if it doesn’t make you feel better. Learn a new joke, share it with friends, smile a little more, and reclaim laughter as a part of your every-day life.
