LAUGHING MATTERS

Genesis 21:1–7

Additional Scripture Readings: Psalm 126:2; Proverbs 31:25

Sarah learned to laugh at the unexpected turns of her days. At first she laughed rather inappropriately at God when she heard she would bear a child in her nineties. She laughed with the pain of unbelief and doubt. Later she laughed with God out of pure joy when she held Isaac, whose name means, “he laughs.” She laughed out of pure joy at God’s power and provision.

There are so many heavy challenges in life! Will my toddler ever be potty-trained? How will I survive the years of puberty with an eye-rolling preteen? What about becoming a mom—again—at age forty-six? Try Sarah’s approach. The next time you lack perspective on the chaos of your days, consider the lighter side of life. Find something to laugh about!
