Pants on the Ground!

Laughing smileyHe will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy. – Job 8:21

A pastor and his friend arrived to take a heavy hide-a-bed couch to someone who needed it. The trouble began when the bed kept falling away from the couch. Taking his belt off, the pastor used it to secure the bed as a quick fix. Feeling proud of his resourcefulness, the pastor headed down the stairs first. Struggling with the weight, he tightly held his end of the couch at the base of the stairs. All was going well until the pastor’s pants fell down, revealing the wildest of boxers! Dependence on him to balance the couch put him in quite the quandry. To make matters worse, another friend arrived just in time for the colorful scene! It couldn’t have happened to a better man since he had a great sense of humor. “Pride comes before a fall, Captain Underpants,” as well as other jeers followed him for months after.

God blessed us with a great sense of humor. When we realize we are free from the condemnation of sin, our lives can be filled with laughter. Don’t let your life be filled with toils and trouble. Let God’s truth take over.   Romans 8:1 Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
