Made Me Smile FTR TSP 134412714Does God laugh? Yes. I think knowing that God has a sense of humor is comforting. Many people view Christianity as a strict religion with lists of rules about what you can and can’t do, as if obeying the rules is all God cares about. This view of Christianity is totally wrong. Yet, many Christians seem to lose their sense of humor once they become serious in their walk with God. But God is a God of humor and love. God does not want us to exchange laughter for a somber outlook on life. People look to us to see if the Christian faith is worth changing their way of life. If they see a bunch of grumpy, sour faces, they may not stick around long enough to experience the beauty and grace of Jesus Christ. So lighten up, laugh a little, and enjoy the grace that has been given to you.


Sarah said, “God has brought me laughter, and everyone who hears about this will laugh with me.”
Genesis 21:6 (NIV)


GIVE THANKS: Reflect on one moment in your day that made you smile or laugh. Then thank God for the joy in your life.
