My mom did not like it when I had too much silliness in me, which is understandable, but on the other hand, she also told me that if I did not laugh about certain things, I would be bound to cry about them at some point or another. The bottom line, it is often better to laugh about something than have to cry about it. ~ Bill Greguska
You will find that a bit of silliness can be very beneficial to you in your life. Give it a try! Here are some encouraging scriptures about the benefits of fun and joyfulness.

Does Laughter Lighten Your Load?
A little laughter can bring much joy to your life. Try it and share it with others! 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 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.

Is God’s View Of Silliness The Same As Yours?
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 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?
Silliness Is Good, But Is Sarcasm, Okay?
Sharp wit and lighthearted sarcasm and can be fun ways to use the creativity that 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 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.

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 we don’t feel like laughing, we have to face pain and hurt, and we can’t find anything to smile about really. But during those times, we must take time to relax. Try to do something fun and silly or even watch something fun for a few minutes. It can help a lot and change our thinking.
A lot of our world’s sickness is only because we don’t have the joy we should. When we live up-tight, and on edge, it causes headaches, digestive problems, lack of energy. We don’t sleep well. Much of this would go away if we would like to learn how to deal with the 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 what the pressures of life have taken out.
Some Of The Benefits Of Silliness!
Notice, when we’re good-natured and full of joy, taking time to laugh, taking time to play, it’s like taking good medicine. That’s what helps us to stay healthy. Medical science tells us that people that laugh, it boosts their immune system. Silliness tends to reduces blood pressure. People who laugh regularly are 40% less likely to have a heart attack than people who laugh periodically.
Laughter triggers the right side of the brain, which helps release creativity and make better decisions. Laughter activates the body’s natural tranquilizers that help us calm down and allow us to sleep better.
There was a lady; she hadn’t slept well in years and years, was continually taking tranquilizers, had taken them so long it hardly even affected her anymore, had tried everything, different diets, different doctors, other medicines.
Nothing seemed to work. But this one doctor gave her a very unusual prescription. He said, “Every night before you go to bed, you need to watch something funny — a funny movie, video, drama, something that makes you laugh.” She started doing that night after night. Then month after month, she got better and better. Today she is totally off her medications. She can sleep like a baby.
God has the answer; He wants us to have peace and joy. We can take some healthy steps to change the course too.
God bless you all,
