Imagine God Laughing

Kelly Klepfer

Can you picture God laughing—God Almighty on the throne, chuckling in delight?

We were created in God’s image, and we laugh often. When babies laugh, they wiggle all over. Jesus said that to enter the kingdom of heaven, we must become like children (Matthew 18:1–5) Have you ever been around an 8-year-old who has discovered knock-knock jokes? The jokes and laughter are relentless.

Laughter is good for you—body and soul. Delight in God’s creation; thank God for whimsy and humor. Laugh!
