2001-04-01 - Passages about Humor
To me, one of God's most wonderful gifts to us is a sense of humor. In America (I'm not certain about other countries), on April 1st we celebrate April Fool's Day, when we play practical jokes on friends etc. I personally value highly a sense of humor in a friend, a minister, etc. I think we also need to be able to laugh at ourselves; that helps to keep us more humble. Today, we will see some of what God's word has to say about humor.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-4 (NASB) There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven A time to give birth and a time to die; A time to plant and a time to uproot what is planted. A time to kill and a time to heal; A time to tear down and a time to build up. A time to weep and a time to laugh.
