I think that laughter was pretty important to God or He would not have spent so much time talking about it. The word "laughter" appears about 40 times in the Bible. When I think about laughter in the Bible, I immediately think about the story of Abraham and Sarah. Abraham was 100 years old and Sarah was way past child-bearing age when the miracle birth of their son Isaac happened.
GENESIS 21:6 "God has made me laugh, and all who hear will laugh with me."
Can you imagine the laughter that this momma (Sarah) had?
I have read commentaries that said that Sarah laughed at the situation and everyone who heard about it also laughed. Still today, we laugh when we read this account.
But the laughter that I believe Sarah had, is much like the laughter I had earlier this evening with my daughter Anna ... a laughter of delight!
A joy-filled attitude can work like a daily dose of vitamins. Sarah knew what it was like to have the wisdom of a merry heart.
