G-D and his sense of humor
Sometimes God is funny.
Guest Contributor: Lyndsey
It would stand to reason that G-D does indeed have a sense of humor starting with the following:
Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness;
1. The state, quality, or fact of being like; resemblance.
2. An imitative appearance; a semblance.
3. A pictorial, graphic, or sculptured representation of something; an image.
Since we are made in G-D’s likeness, then we would have and experience the same qualities/emotions such as humor!
So, where in the scriptures does it show G-D’s humor?….
how about when the Ark of the Covenant found its way into the hands of the Philistines..?
God was not thrilled his holy box with the Ten Commandments was in the hands of a bunch of pagan worshippers….so he decided to put some heat on the Philistines, literally.
As strange as it sounds, God whacked the Philistines with a seven-month-long, flaring pack of hemorrhoids.
In fact, these folks were in so much agony, Scripture goes out of its way to declare ‘the cry of the city went up to heaven.’ (1 Samuel 5:12)
Yes, hemorrhoids were heard in heaven.”
And what about the talking donkey?
Number 22: 28 Then the Lord opened the donkey’s mouth, and she said to Balaam, “What have I done to you to make you beat me these three times?” …..
32 The angel of the Lord asked him, “Why have you beaten your donkey these three times? I have come here to oppose you because your path is a reckless one before me.
33 The donkey saw me and turned away from me these three times. If she had not turned away, I would certainly have killed you by now, but I would have spared her.”
WOW! And here ya go:
Deuteronomy 25:11-12 If two men fight and one’s wife tries to help by grabbing the testicles of the other man, her hand will be cut off without pity. (Living Bible)
Yikes! That’s gotta hurt!
Proverbs 27:15 A constant dripping on a rainy day and a cranky woman are much alike. You can no more stop her complaints than you can stop the wind. (Living Bible)
And did you know it rained FISH in Australia!?
Come on now…that’s FUNNY!
Finally, In my personal life, I have seen G-D’s humor many times in my sons.
My oldest son has Autism and LOVES to run around in his birthday suit…
no worries whatsoever…(makes me wonder if that is what the Garden of Eden was like….not a pretty sight now that he is getting older and heavier….
fortunately, my neighbor is a drinker.. .)LOL
My youngest son asked me the other day if I remembered so and so, and I could not recall what he was talking about.
Sooooo, he walked over to me and shook my head with his two little hands and said, “now, do you remember”? 🙂
So yes, I absolutely believe that G-D has a sense of humor…
A final laugh
The children were lined up in the cafeteria of a Catholic elementary school for lunch.
At the head of the table was a large pile of apples. The nun made a note, and posted on the apple tray: “Take only ONE. God is watching.”
Moving further along the lunch line, at the other end of the table was a large pile of chocolate chip cookies.
A child had written a note, “Take all you want. God is watching the apples!”
