Laughter is a Great Gift From God

The great Christian devotionals writer, Oswald Chambers, once wrote, “Laughter and weeping are the two most intense forms of human emotion, and these profound wells of human emotion are to be consecrated to God.” In Psalms 126:2 it says, “Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy. Laughter is a great gift from God. We are not only called into a life of reverent piety, we have been given the great gift and joy of knowing God! (From a sermon by Chris Surber, Feast of Purim, 10/20/2009)
