Laughter and Joy
Friday, March 25, 2022
My wife and I often joke that reading the Book of Job is a “job”. The trials of the righteous man in the face of criticism from his supposed friends seem to go on forever, but all is right in the end.
One of Job’s friends, Bildad the Shuhite, actually makes a good, valid point in his first response to Job:
“He will once again fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy.”
Job 8:21 NLT
No matter how dire or depressing things may seem, there will always be a time for laughter and joy if we keep our faith in God.
