Humor

He will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy. - Job 8:21
 
I’m always looking for humor in every situation. No matter where I’m ministering, I like to find something funny in a given set of circumstances and talk about that. 
 
When I first came to faith in Christ, however, I was under the impression that I had to give up humor and become very solemn and serious. Soon the part of me that loved to smile and laugh began to wither. 
 
But I didn’t want that aspect of my personality to die. It was a unique part of me that God had created. In reality, it was one of my best strengths. So, over time, I began to let my humor come out again, and I discovered its strength in communicating truth and grace to others.
 
“God is a comedian playing to an audience too afraid to laugh.” - Voltaire (1694-1778)
