Good Morning March 17

God is fun! That may seem like a strange thing to say. Most often we think of God as stern, or awesome, or fearful, or one we worship. All of these are true, but fun? That’s not a characteristic we would usually include. When God made man and woman He put them in a garden, the most beautiful place we could imagine. He gave them the best of the best. Sin messed that up, but God still wants our best. The Bible says God laughs – especially at the silliness of His kids. Jesus had the most serious task in history. He had times of stress beyond anything we can fathom. He wept many tears, but I believe He laughed, also. He loved kids, and kids are funny. He loved the fellowship of His friends, and disciples. He found great joy in companionship. The first three of the fruit of the Holy Spirit, which is the nature of Jesus, are love, joy, and peace.(Galatians 5:22) God is good. His mercy is everlasting. To know God is the best joy possible. In Him we have good holy fun.
