A Little Silliness Can Help Keep Us Sane!

Silliness...Go ahead and laugh about it! NeedEncouragement.comPlease contact us if you have questions or if you need some encouragement.

Silliness might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it can certainly add some spice to life! I used to get scolded by my mom for being too silly and over the top, but my mom also taught me an important lesson about laughter. If we take ourselves too seriously all the time, we miss out on opportunities for joy and lightheartedness. It’s true that there are moments in life where seriousness is necessary, but don’t forget to sprinkle a little bit of silliness in whenever you can. You never know how much it could brighten someone else’s day or even your own.

So go ahead and let loose with some goofy jokes or antics–it might just do you some good! There are times in life to be somber, and other times to be light-hearted and jovial. Wisdom tells us that there is a time and place for everything, that is what my dad used to try to teach me, but sometimes it was hard to listen to him, even though he was right! ~ Bill Greguska

Ecclesiastes 3:4  a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn, and a time to dance.

Enjoy Silliness, But What If It Gets 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 control yourself and 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 un-Godly things. 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, including appreciating humor and sharing 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.

Silliness Is Good ~ But Is Sarcasm Okay?

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

Is Your View Of Silliness The Same As God’s View?

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 profound way). Then that is what I would have to consider appropriate humor.
There is so much on T. V. and in movies that God does not think is funny. Colossians 3:8. I realize that humor 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.

What Does The Bible Say About Laughter?

Proverbs 17:22 puts it like this, “A happy heart is like good medicine, and a cheerful mind works healing.”
Laughter is a great natural stress reliever. We all have times when we don’t feel like laughing, have to face pain and hurt, and can’t find anything to smile about. But during those times, we must take time to relax. Try to do something fun or silly or watch something fun for a few minutes. It can help a lot and change our thinking. 
Many of our world’s sicknesses are because we don’t have the joy we should. Living up-tight and on edge causes headaches, digestive problems, and a lack of energy. We don’t sleep well. Much of this would go away if we would like to learn how to deal with stress appropriately. One of the most excellent stress relievers God has given us is laughter. Laughter is like taking medicine. It not only makes you feel better, but it releases healing throughout your system. When we laugh, it restores and rejuvenates us from the pressures of life.
