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!
The Photo Session
The children had all been photographed, and the teacher was trying to persuade them each to buy a copy of the group picture. “Just think how nice it will be to look at it when you are all grown up and say, ‘There’s Jennifer, she’s a lawyer,’ or ‘That’s Michael, he’s a doctor.'”
A small voice at the back of the room rang out, “And there’s the teacher, she’s dead.”
And now for the bonus …
After finding the door to the garage left open, Mom rebuked her daughter. “Were you born in a barn, Heather?”
“No, but Jesus was.” (Well played, young one… well played!)
THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: [Humanity] has unquestionably one really effective weapon — laughter.
