A Laughing Matter

Posted in Uncategorized at 12:50 pm by Steve

The church as an institution is all about management. How do we manage the future? As a consequence we get an elevated opinion of what we do verse who we are. I think Jesus wanted us to see ourselves from God’s perspective and perhaps have a good belly laugh at all we do and how important, prim and proper we think we are. I believe that if we could laugh at ourselves a bit more, we would have healthier relationship, better emotional, mental and physical health. ‘

But like our Pharisee ancestors we cling to social class structure and look down on people who think, look and act differently. Little do we realize the laugh is on us. God, on His throne, is getting a good belly laugh at our religiosity and the silly things we do.

 

Are you willing to laugh at yourself and help others laugh too?
