Quite a few years ago I really began to think about what I thought was funny. What made me laugh. And, more importantly, would what I laughed at, make God laugh too?
Makes you stop and think.
It has helped that I've refereed fights between kids for lotsa years. When you hear one say, "It was funny" Or "I meant it as a joke" "I was only kidding". My response would often be "Well, clearly, it wasn't funny or a joke to them."
I prayed way back then that God would instill in me a holy sense of humor. I have really felt His grace in this request. We can pray for this for ourselves and for our children. And, for the whole world. :)
