I Peter 4:7-9
The end of all things is near; therefore be serious and discipline yourselves for the sake of your prayers. Above all, maintain constant love for one another, for love covers a multitude of sins. Be hospitable to one another without complaining.Lord,
you know that
I take my faith seriously.
But sometimes I need to be reminded:
"Life's too serious
to be taken so seriously."
You intend our faith
to be joyous,
I'm reminded of a picture of Jesus
I saw from a group called
"The Fellowship of Merry Christians."
It's one of the few pictures
I've seen of Jesus smiling,
maybe even laughing
as if he's just told a funny joke.
Would that we had that same joy,
even fun, in our faith!
Love and laughter cover a multitude of sins.
Thanks be to God!
