To Laugh or to Jog... that is the question today....
The Bible school teacher asked, " Now Billy, tell me, do you say prayers before eating?" "No sir," he replied. "We don't have to. My mom is a good cook!"
I love to laugh and I especially love to be with others who make me laugh as well. I am convinced that one day soon, we will be reading how much better laughter is for us than exercise. I mean come on, who invented exercise and is it biblical? You know, the scripture that says that laughing is like a medicine? Maybe exercise is just a way to get you and I to buy those really expensive running shoes. Or what about the pricey running out fit I just bought. Or what about the expensive health clubs we belong to?
Why do our bodies need it? Mine has done just fine for years now with out it. I know our bodies are a temple of the Lord, but I need to see for myself where it is written that I am to exercise. Show me where Jesus jogged. We have no record of the Lord doing sit ups. None what so ever. I mean everywhere I look in the bible that talks about the Lords transportation, it says he walked or rode a donkey. And think about this, he didn't run on the water, it clearly states that he "walked" on the water. Even Paul said that exercise profited nothing. And I agree with him! I remember someone one time telling me that they would start jogging as soon as they passed by a runner on the road that was smiling. Now that is good sound advice!
I think I need to put my running shoes back inside the closet and go read some more of those funniest things kids say and laugh today instead of running. Ok, so maybe I should drop the Krispy Kreme donut into the garbage can on the way to my big cushy chair in the living room.
Love, Laugh and Live in His Light...hugsssssssssss
