Today, I heard co-workers coming through the door, and they were just laughing and cutting up. It sounded so good. In fact, laughter is good for you. It lowers your blood pressure, reduces depression and relieves pain. It aids in breathing and even helps you lose weight!
In Ecclesiastes 3:4, Solomon explained that there is a “time to weep and a time to laugh.” For “a merry heart doeth good [like] a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones” (Proverbs 17:22). No matter what kind of day you’re having, hearing someone laugh, will make you smile. It’s hard to be mad at someone when you’re laughing. Have you noticed that you rarely laugh out loud when you’re alone? It’s a social thing. Laughter is contagious. The more you laugh with others, the more likely you are to be remembered in a positive way.
God’s people should “rejoice in the Lord, always” (Philippians 4:4), for we are “simply blessed.” Courtney
