One of the misconceptions about being a Christian is non-Christians think we don’t know how to have fun or have a sense of humor. Trust me, if the Big Guy can have a sense of humor when it comes to dealing with us mere mortals, so can we.
The difference for Christians is we don’t have to debase ourselves or others to generate a smile. Laughter at life or ourselves is a gift from God.
So, let’s smile a little!
A Sunday school teacher was discussing the Ten Commandments with her fourth grade class. After explaining the commandment to honor thy father and mother, she asked, “Is there a commandment that teaches us how to treat our brothers and sisters?”
Without missing a beat one little boy (the oldest of a family) answered, “Thou shall not kill.”

A DJ at a university radio station ran through his material faster than expected during one shift. He asked listeners for requests, but no one phoned. So Sam played a few more wild hard rock numbers and asked for calls after each one, but still no response. Finally he got serious with his audience. “Okay,” he threatened, “if I don’t get any requests, I’ll play something my parents would like.” The phone rang immediately.
THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: There’s nothing like deep breaths after laughing that hard. Nothing in the world like a sore stomach for the right reasons. — The Perks of Being a Wallflower, written by Stephen Chbosky
