Does God Have a Sense of Humor?

Posted by root On February - 27 - 2010

â??Then the LORD did exactly what he had promised. Sarah became pregnant, and she gave a son to Abraham in his old age.  It all happened at the time God had said it would.  And Abraham named his son Isaac.  And Sarah declared, “God has brought me laughter!  All who hear about this will laugh with me.â? – Genesis 21:1-3; 6 (NLT)

gods-humorFor years, Iâ??ve subscribed to the belief that God has a sense of humor.  How else would you explain things like the multi-cultural church that now meets in a place that used to house KKK meetings.  Or what about the lady that prayed to find a new jaguar in her driveway?  She found it alright . . . it just drove off after the person in it realized he was at the wrong house! (By the way, these are both true stories.)

Even in the Bible, God shows us His sense of humor.  Abraham was 100 and Sarah was 90 years old when God honored a promise He had made 25 years earlier.  Notice that the scriptures did not say that Sarah conceived from the Holy Spirit, like Mary did with Baby Jesus.  So you know what that means!  Abraham took care of his â??husbandly dutiesâ?!  The thought of a 100-year old man and his 90-year old wife going through the motions of procreating is quite laughable!   Even Sarah laughed at the thought of having a child well beyond the normal child-bearing years (see Genesis 18:12).  This promise from God was a manifested in  the form of a son named Isaac.
Many people refuse to see God as having a sense of humor because they view Him as one who keeps a checklist of rights & wrongs committed.  But the notion of God being a compassionate Father who loves on His children is one we need to wholeheartedly embrace.  If you have a God that you cannot have a relationship with, eventually frustration sets in.  Consider this: a believer in the Muslim faith cannot even call his God â??Fatherâ? because itâ??s considered blasphemy!  Thatâ??s no laughing matter.

If God, in His infinite wisdom, would allow us to benefit from laughter, do you think Heâ??d prevent us from having access to it?  Think about this:

On average, children laugh 300 times a day, but adults laugh only 17 times a day.  Laughter decreases blood pressure.  Laughter calms the nervous system.  Laughter strengthens your midsection muscles.  Laughter burns calories.  Laughter is one of the greatest builders of your immune system.  Laughter increases your capacity to fight disease.  Laughter relaxes the body.  Laughter reduces stress.  Laughter elevates your mood.  Laughter improves brain functioning.  Laughter gives you energy.  And last, but definitely not least, laughter makes you feel good!

And if, by chance, you still have doubts about God having a sense of humor, please consider the meaning of Isaacâ??s name (â??He laughsâ?).  Take a wild guess as to who the â??Heâ? is.

“If you’re not allowed to laugh in heaven, I don’t want to go there.” – Martin Luther
