Laugh a Little

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE:

“A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength.”
(Proverbs 17:22, NLT)

TODAY’S WORD:

God has given you a great prescription for living a long, healthy and happy life: Laugh, and laugh a lot! The “medicine” of laughter is within everyone, but you may need to start taking it. Recent studies have shown that laughter boosts the body’s immune system, reduces stress, reduces the risk of heart attack, and even acts as a natural tranquilizer. Those are health benefits everyone needs. That’s why it’s tragic to go through life with a stone face. The enemy has convinced too many into thinking that they need to be somber and serious in order to be a Christian. But don’t fall for that trick. God wants you to laugh and live well!

PRAYER FOR TODAY:

Lord, thank You for a sense of humor and for laughter. Teach me how to enjoy this wonderful gift and share it with others in Jesus’ name. Amen.
