“The assumption that a sense of humor and a Christian faith are incompatible is totally mistaken.”  Malcolm Muggeridge

Laughter is God’s therapy.

Really “religious people” sometimes have a hard time laughing.  Jesus’ humor was one thing that set Him apart from pi-ositers.

Eternity does have the last laugh.  If the resurrection isn’t a hoot, nothing is.

“…then at last this Scripture will come true: ‘Death is swallowed up in victory.’  O death, where is your victory?  Where then your sting?  For sin – the sting that causes death – will all be gone; and the law, which reveals our sins, will no longer be our judge.  How we thank God for all of this!  It is He who makes us victorious through Jesus Christ our Lord!”  1 Corinthians 15:54-57 TLB
