For whatever reason I was just thinking that I have not heard or experienced anything really funny lately. You know, a good joke or something that caused a great deal of laughter. After I was thinking about this, I was reminded of the Proverbs, which say, “A joyful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit dries up the bones” (Proverbs 17.22).
On one hand, it is amazing how laughter and a joyful heart is like a good medicine to the soul. On the other hand, it is amazing how bad moods, feelings, hopelessness and despair can really crush a person.
With that I have two things. One, we need to be reminded that we have to encourage and support one another when we are down and broken. Two, if anyone has a good joke or a funny story, I would love to hear from you!
