You have to admit that they do look funny. So do giraffes.
This Sunday we will begin a new series at Avalon Church entitled Identity Theft. We will study the book of Ecclesiastes, which was written by King Solomon. I love him. The dude was smart. Solomon has been hailed as the wisest man who ever lived. Under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit he gave us a book of rules (Proverbs), a book of romance (Song of Solomon), and a book of regrets (Ecclesiastes). In the wisdom of Proverbs he challenged our attitude with “a merry heart does us good like a medicine.” Imagine that. Holy Scripture not only allows for merriment, joy, happiness, and laughter but it actually encourages it. I will refrain from writing a treatise on what constitutes godly pleasure. We all know that Satan’s counterfeit pleasures never fulfill and they always leave you filled with regrets.
Take time to laugh today. Why is it that so many Christians are uptight all the time? Stop taking yourself so seriously. We have a lot to be thankful for and a lot to be happy about. Laughter will ease your stress and it will even make you feel better. So try to laugh today. Tell a funny story. Recollect those darn things that the kids said. Watch a funny movie. Tell a joke. Enjoy yourself. It will be an elixir for your soul. It is, after all, the best medicine.
