Secondly, we don’t take God seriously enough. God says stuff like this in His word. Job 8:21. “He will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy.” Proverbs 14:30 LB. “A relaxed attitude lengthens a man’s life…” You know what research says.
It says that when we laugh more T cells are released, more immune factors are kicked in, our entire muscular system just chills out. The Bible says that laughter lengthens our lives. Are you laughing? If you are not laughing weekly, I mean a loud, bellowing, deep laugh, something is messed up.
Speaking of laughter and laughing about yourself, last weekend was a tough weekend for me because I turned thirty-five. After the Saturday night service some friends of mine kind of kidnapped me and took me to a restaurant for my birthday. I did get to choose the restaurant, Cafe Natura.
Now most of you if you know me well know that I watch my diet pretty closely. I am not a purist. I don’t eat and drink vegetables and carrot juice every meal, but I do eat like that a lot. That is why I chose Cafe Natura, because all the fat grams are out there in the menu and everything is healthy. You know I tell my wife often, “Lisa, don’t ever buy anything that is processed, with nitrites and especially, Lisa, stay away from baloney.
It will kill you.” Well the other day I walk in while the children are having lunch. Although I didn’t think that any of our children had ever seen baloney, LeeBeth had seen some at school and requested that her mother buy some. When I saw Lisa putting baloney on bread with mustard, I said, “Lisa, what are you doing? You are going to kill our children. Baloney is horrible for you.” She kind of started laughing at the time and later told some of my friends about the event.© Copyright admin, All rights Reserved. Written For: Ed Young Jr
