Laughter Can Be The Best Medicine!

Laughter is an instant vacation

How much do you enjoy laughter?

It is so good to enjoy laughter because laughter is good for you, but why do we say that? Scientist says that laughter produces chemicals in our brains called endorphins that help make us heal and feel better.
 
I love to laugh, and I also really like to make other people laugh. Just a simple smile or a laugh can change the entire direction of a single day that is a gift that each of us has the potential of tapping into. Our society spends millions of dollars on medication each year, but sometimes what they need is just some good old laughter with a friend or acquaintance! Bottom line. Enjoy laughter because it is good for you!  Keep this in mind that, “Seven days without laughter makes one weak.” ~ Bill Greguska

 

                        

 

How to Be More Humorous in Your Everyday Life 

The benefits of laughter are many, especially if you laugh each day! The dictionary defines a sense of humor as, “The ability to perceive, enjoy, or express what is comical or funny.” According to this definition, God must smile when He sees one of His children show an ability to perceive, enjoy, or express what is comical! Take a moment to check out ReverendFun.com to see the humor that is super funny –while at the same time keeping it clean and respectful to others!

Enjoy Laughter, But What if it is Inappropriate?

You must be discerning about whether or not humor is appropriate. Colossians 4:6 says, “Let your speech always be with grace, as though seasoned with salt so that you will know how you should respond to each person.”

You must always have control over yourself and also your words because the tongue is the quickest weapon and sometimes lashes out without thinking. James 3:8 says that the tongue is “a restless evil, full of deadly poison,” so we must keep it tamed!

When in doubt, you need to ask the Holy Spirit for wisdom before saying or doing things that are un-Godly. The Bible says that the Holy Spirit will guide us and help us know God’s truth John 16:13.

Yes, all good things come from God, that includes the ability to appreciate humor and share jokes with our friends. Of course, it’s certainly not a sin to laugh! But we also need to be aware of our words, others’ feelings, and different situations where humor may or may not be appropriate. A good rule of thumb is that when in doubt, it is best to refrain.

Is What I Call Appropriate Humor The Same as God’s?

If your humor is lighthearted, doesn’t hurt you or anyone else (disrespects anyone), and does not go against God’s commands for our lives (in any serious way), and then that is what I would have to consider appropriate humor.

There is so much on T. V. and movies that God does not think is funny. Colossians 3:8. I realize that humor that is at the expense of someone else’s feelings, or that only tears them down instead of building them up, is also something that God says we should not do Colossians 4:6; Ephesians 4:29?

 

Enjoy Laughter, But Is Sarcasm Okay?

Sharp wit and lighthearted sarcasm and a can be fun ways to use the creativity that God gave us. Humor can be a wonderful way to make someone laugh and feel better, in this serious world we live in (when appropriate of course). God can use you to help bring joy to others with the heart and humor that He has given you. Although cutting remarks at the expense of someone else is not using humor how God would have intended. Proverbs 26:18-19.
