Laughter Quote

‘Laughter is a divine gift to the human who is humble. A proud man cannot laugh because he must watch his dignity; he cannot give himself over to the rocking and rolling of his belly. But a poor and happy man laughs heartily because he gives no serious attention to his ego.’

How about you? Are you making the most of this divine gift? I’m very grateful that God gave me a father with an unusual gift of humor, who taught me to laugh at myself (there’s certainly no lack of material). Time and again laughter has provided much-needed help in my ongoing battle against pride.”
