If you look at Jesus teaching about the plank in the eye, that’s actually 1st century humor. It was a ridiculous comparison Jesus made. The people in that day could tell it was real humor.

Thanks for sharing Brian. Jesus knew what people needed to hear in a way that they could receive and apply it to their lives. Nice insight!

I actually believe He was very serious indeed. Such is the comparrison, we comment on others whilst our own issues are so big we don’t notice them. Jesus said He is the Way, the Truth and the Light. Since He is the truth, this funny remark still stands as truth. Our situation is so perilous, the descriptive words seem funny to us, yet are true.

Yes you are correct…Jesus stayed true to the Word even in correction, rebuke, or encouragement. Thanks for your insights.

I believe you are right on with this article Crystal. Amazing how God works in us and through us to get us to the place that we can laugh at our self and our circumstances. He knew laughter was good for our mind, body and heart. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Judy! You and I know the joy of laughter…keeps us sane and strong for the journey. Love you lots!

Couldnt agree more. It is sad for people who cannot laugh at themselves.
This past weekend was really tough, but now it is Monday, and am laughing like a loon.
I am sure God sometimes laughs at our feeble attempts to do things without His leading and guidance, He has a great sense of humour.
Blessings, I really needed this encouragement.

Excellent article. The realities of the comedy club situations was great. I notice elsewhere a tendency to ignore or to try and explain-away the fact one might only judge his brothers. And; whom is one to judge the servant of another? Those type of things; I find there might be a “movement” (nothing is new); and as-from, and within, many of places, as to claims of finding it necessary to do the opposite of the former; and that is, that we should be judging eachother. I don’t find that true. I believe it is also Ephesians that says as much. God Bless. :).
