Christian Humor

I love to laugh, don't you?  It just lifts the spirits and makes you feel better.


I found these little stories on the internet and both are so cute and funny.

ADAM'S RIB

In Sunday School, they were teaching how God created everything, including human beings.  Little Johnny seemed especially intent when they told him how Eve was created out of one of Adam's ribs. Later in the week, his mother noticed him lying down as though he were ill, and said, 'Johnny what is the matter?'  Little Johnny responded, 'I have a pain in my side. I think I'm going to have a wife.'



TWO LITTLE BOYS
A couple had two little boys, ages 8 and 10, who were excessively mischievous. The two were always getting into trouble and their parents could be assured that if any mischief occurred in their town their two young sons were in some way involved.
The parents were at their wits end as to what to do about their sons' behavior. The mother had heard that a clergyman in town had been successful in disciplining children in the past, so she asked her husband if he thought they should send the boys to speak with the clergyman.  The husband said, 'We might as well. We need to do something before I really lose my temper!'

The clergyman agreed to speak with the boys, but asked to see them individually. The 8 year old went to meet with him first. The clergyman sat the boy down and asked him sternly,

'Where is God?'

The boy made no response, so the clergyman repeated the question in an even sterner tone,

'Where is God?'

Again the boy made no attempt to answer. So the clergyman raised his voice even more and shook his finger in the boy's face,

'WHERE IS GOD?'

At that the boy bolted from the room and ran directly home, slamming himself in the closet. His older brother followed him into the closet and asked what had happened. The younger brother replied, 'We are in BIG trouble this time. God is missing and they think we did it.'


Do you imagine that God has a sense of humor? Since we are made in the image of God and we are creatures of laughter—He must laugh out loud! Heaven will definitely be a place with pearly gates, streets of gold, and foundations made of the finest jewels. It must also be marked with joy and laughter around every corner.

Since we aren’t in heaven yet and live in a fallen world of pain, it’s sometimes hard to laugh. It’s difficult to read the news on a daily basis and not feel the inward groaning of the Spirit at the hardship of this world. Yet through the Holy Spirit we can experience a taste of heaven with sincere and pure joy.

People who live above their circumstances usually possess a well-developed sense of humor, because in the final analysis  that's what gets them through.

A sense of humor helps us through many sticky problems.
