"Does God have more fun than we do?"
I had never thought about this question and I thought it was a good one. It made me smile.
So this got me to thinking about God's humor and what the bible has to say about it.
We often think of the bible as very serious and it is of course. But, there are some funny things that happen in it. Things that make us snicker. There are funny names in the bible such as:
Isaac means "he laughs."
Esau means "hairy."
Peter means "rock" which was the last thing he was. His personality was one of instability yet that is the name God gave him and the person he would build his church upon.
There are events that are funny too like:
A donkey talking (Numbers 22:23-30).
After being released from prison, Peter couldn't get into the prayer meeting where people were praying for him. Rhoda, who answered the door, couldn't believe God had answered their prayer and shut the door on Peter (Acts 12:12-17).
Think about all the fun God has showing Himself powerful and almighty:
Creating the universe
Parting the Red Sea
Speaking through a burning bush
Answering the prayers of his children
These are just a few of the things that came to mind this morning.
God is holy and to be revered. But he does have a good sense of humor.
Enjoy his humor. Look for it in the bible. There are lots more I don't have time to mention.
Have a great day and think about the wonderful things of God!
