There are many moments in which we find ourselves giggling or laughing. It could be a funny joke, a silly face, a goofy sound. God gave us laughter as a gift, and we are most assuredly supposed to use it! We should all practice laughing with our friends and loved ones often, especially since God laughs too!
The Bible tells us that
“The One enthroned in heaven laughs … ” Psalm 2:4
While God may not find as much time to laugh at a silly joke, we do know that He finds humor in the ways that humans act. God laughs at the wicked, because He knows they will not win. He smiles down on His children too, and we must remember that He is the creator of laughter, and that He wishes to give it to us as well!
“He will yet fill your mouth with laughter … ”Job 8:21
Laughter is a gift, and we should be grateful to take part in our joy!
How has God made it possible for you to laugh? Can you think of things that God might find funny?
