Nothing is worse than Christians who takes themselves too seriously. Humour levels our egos and puts everything back into the right perspective. We are invited to live as free as children, filled with the joy of the Lord, which is our strength. A sense of humour is our safe-guard against pride.

You’re right, humor does safe guard us against pride. I love the quote from Proverbs.
yes, it was a new verse for me; I could not remember hearing it before
So funny. I haven’t heard of this verse before either.
God Bless. 🙂
it was new for me too
Being able to laugh at ourselves, keeps us from taking ourselves too seriously, helps us to refocus on what is really important, and enjoying the life that God has intended. 🙂
