I wanted to write something funny, but that seemed frivolous in the face of wars, political corruption, sexual assaults, and rampant gun violence.
I wanted to write something humorous, but that seemed callous in the face of homelessness, earthquakes, famine, floods, and fires.
I wanted to write something lighthearted, but that seemed heartless in the face of hatred, discrimination, deception, disease, and death.
Yet, Proverbs 17:22 says a merry heart does good like a medicine.
And Jesus said: “…but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”
So I’m writing something funny because the world needs a good laugh.
A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones. Proverbs 17:22 KJV
“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 KJV
