“Laughter Is The Best Medicine”

I LOVE to laugh. I love to hear a good joke or enjoy fellowship with other Christians. Laughter is good for us.
According to an article at http://www.helpguide.org…” Laughter decreases stress hormones and increases immune cells and infection-fighting antibodies, thus improving your resistance to disease. Laughter triggers the release of endorphins, the body’s natural feel-good chemicals. Endorphins promote an overall sense of well-being and can even temporarily relieve pain.”
So, laughter is good for us. Proverbs 17:22 says, “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine.”
It’s good for us to laugh.
So, do you laugh a lot? Hopefully you do. It’s good for you.
Laughter can ease the tension in a room.
Laughter relaxes us.
I encourage you to learn to laugh at yourself. We are all human… we make mistakes… none of us are perfect. Be secure enough to laugh at your mistakes… laugh at yourself.
The late Jerry Clower used to finish many of his concerts with the words, “I have made arrangements to miss the one place on earth where they ‘ain’t gone be no laughter.. and that’s hell..”
So, laugh more.. it’s good for your spiritually, physically and emotionally.
