Laughter - A Merry Heart
November 1 | Taken from a message by Adrian Rogers
Proverbs 15:13 says, "A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken." A merry heart is the ability to capture and enjoy those wonderful times of life and let it turn to laughter.
Your sense of humor is a gift from God. It has been psychologically documented, that laughter along with a well-rounded sense of humor is one of the sure signs of intelligence. I’m not talking about unwholesome laughter or cheap, course, degrading humor. The Bible warns against that (see Ephesians 5:4). But good, wholesome laughter is a gift from God.
Abraham Lincoln said, "God must have meant for us to laugh, or else He would not have made so many mules, parrots, monkeys, and human beings." God wants us to laugh.
