Laugh Again: Experience Outrageous Joy, Bible companion
When was the last time you had a real belly-shaking laugh? That long? OK, when was the last time you chuckled? Giggled? Smiled?
Ours is a day of sarcastic laughter and devious grins—the kind that leaves behind saddness after the “funny” has worn off. After all, what do we really have to laugh about? Look around; people are anxious about today and tomorrow, discontent with themselves and their circumstances. Living only for today, they hop to advance their own agenda. They're trying to grasp a fleeting moment of what they think is happiness. No, too often life isn't a smile; it's a frown.
In Paul's letter to the Philippians, he declares that Jesus Christ came to fill our lives with joy. And this authentic, abiding joy—genuine laughter deep within the soul—is available to all, regardless of life's ups and downs. Would you like to experience outrageous joy—the kind that tingles the soul? Then it's time to Laugh Again.
