A Respectful Light-hearted Time Out

From the very beginning, we were created in God’s image. What an immense honor it is to have the features of God, to be like Him. If we have a sense of humor, then the One who created us has a sense of humor as well. (Molly Law (Christianity.com editor)

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth (Genesis 1:1). Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness…” So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them (Genesis 1:26-27).

As we are in a relationship with God, we are given the gift of laughter, dancing, and happiness, not apart from God, but with God. (Molly Law)

Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy. Then it was said among the nations, “The LORD has done great things for them.”

Psalm 126:2 New International Version

To see God’s sense of humour, you only have to look at the Sloth, the Platypus and Rowan Atkinson (my quote 😊)

He will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy.

Job 8:21 New International Version

A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.

Proverbs 17:22 New International Version

Rejoice in the LORD and be glad, you righteous; sing, all you who are upright in heart!

Psalm 32:11 New International Version

Our Father,

Thank You for blessing us with a sense of humour. You desire for us to enjoy Your Creation and fellowship with others, as can be seen in the life of Jesus who, not only spent time in prayer and preaching, but in moments of leisure with His family and disciples.

When personal and world events often become distressing, thank You that You send us moments of pure joy and laughter.

In Jesus Name, Amen.
