Wait a minute. A time to laugh? That’s not in the Bible is it? Doesn't the Bible have only serious topics like heaven and hell?
True enough, there’s plenty about those topics in the Bible, but it does say there’s a time to laugh. (See Ecclesiastes 3:4.)
It makes sense that the God who created us with the ability to laugh would let us know there’s a time for it. And whoever said that God doesn’t have a sense of humor never considered the platypus. Seriously. What an animal!
Not everyone laughs at the same type of joke. One of my sons likes what I consider to be corny jokes. Something like this:
What do you get if you divide the circumference of a pumpkin by its diameter? (Pumpkin Pi)
Why is there no gambling in Africa? (Too many cheetahs)
What do you call a pig who does karate? (A pork chop)
I always liked the old joke about the enlightened man who told the boy that there were no real miracles. The boy said, “What about the time God opened up the waves of the Red Sea and let the whole nation of Israel right through the middle?” The man said that could be easily explained because many scholars said the Red Sea was only 10 inches deep.” The boy exclaimed, “Wow! That is an even bigger miracle! God drowned the whole Egyptian army in 10 inches of water!”
Here’s some more web sites that have Christian based humor.
This one’s not Christian-based humor, but rather some conservative chicks using humor to make political points. http://www.chicksontheright.com
What about you? What kind of humor tickles your funny bone? Have you ever used humor to make a serious point? What place does it have in your life? Or please, please tell me your favorite joke!
