Can you recall the last time you laughed uncontrollably? I hope it was recently. If not, I want to share some hope with you: Jesus has a sense of humor and wants to bring more joy into our lives. This isn’t the type of cruel humor we often ascribe to Him when life disappoints but something that helps us live with grace.
We’ve begun a new series on humor, and the takeaway is that Jesus desires to fill our lives with adventure, fullness, and even improvisation. This week students will learn that Jesus’ humor is good, and He’d rather laugh at us than with us. That will benefit your teenager during life’s unexpected twists and turns—and you, too, I hope. Join us in praying for this, and start picturing Jesus with a smile. He has something fun and enjoyable to share with you today.
Use these questions to prompt a conversation with your teenager:
- Jesus spent three years hanging out nonstop with a ragtag group of disciples. How would you describe the type of humor that must’ve required?
- Why have or haven’t you ever thought of Jesus as having a sense of humor? What do you think he’d be like without one?
- What are some things in creation that make you smile or laugh? Why do you think God made them?
Make ’em laugh! Praying for your week!
