The Litmus Test of Joy - a SENSE of Humor!

We introduced the need for joy in my last posting. But how can I tell if someone has joy even when they are going through a difficult time? One litmus test that shows joy is a SENSE OF HUMOR. Psalm 126:2 says, "Our mouth was filled with laughter!" Read below the following thoughts on laughter. Ask God to keep within you a SENSE OF HUMOR even as you go through the hurts of life and ministry.

"Work hard and have a sense of humor!" (Mother Theresa)

"Scientists have found that laughter has a profound effect on virtually every important organ in the human body. Laughter reduces tensions, relaxes tissues, and exercises most vital organs. it results in a beneficial effect on us mentally and physically." (Executive's Digest)

"I think it is just as sacred to laugh as it is to pray, or preach, or to witness." (Charles Swindol)

"Love may make the world go round, but laughter keeps you from getting dizzy." (Barbara Johnson)
