    He Laughs!!
    What makes something funny? Letís admit itóa lot of our humor is based on the misfortune of others, on ridicule, on someone elseís embarrassment or pain. When Jerry hits Tom in the face with a frying pan, when someone slips on a banana peel, people laugh.

    Does God have a sense of humor? You would probably think not. The Bible presents his thoughts and words with such intensity, such earnestness, such solemnity, that you just canít imagine Father, Son, or Holy Spirit ever cracking a joke. Still, he laughs.

    Just as the absurdity of life seems funny now and then, God looks at human pretension and pride and puffery and sometimes just loses it. In Psalm 2 the Father looks down at the high and mighty of earth and their proud defiance of him.

    Their puny plans look silly to him: ďThe One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at themĒ (Psalm 2:4).

    Read 1 Samuel chapter 5. When the Philistines had seized the holy ark of the covenant and placed it in the temple of their god Dagon, God could have brought any manner of catastrophe upon themóburning sulfur from heaven, lightning bolts, plagues, the angel of death. Do you know what he did? He struck them with what were probably severe hemorrhoids. They begged the Israelites to take their ark back.

    Tell me that God doesnít have a sense of humor.
