Genesis 18: Sarah laughed!
Sarah denied: “I did not laugh.”
God: “Oh yes, you did laugh.”
God has a huge surprise in store for Sarah. I think God is just giggling with glee in this entire scene, about the surprise that awaits Sarah in 9 months.
God’s surprising sense of humor is all around today. For example, I was outside raking up some old leaves and twigs from my flower beds. The black dirt I uncovered was cold and dead. Several hours later when I returned to pick up some tools, I saw tiny green tips poking up from the earth. I laughed to myself – how strange and surprising that this cold dead dirt can burst forth with life!
I think God loves to surprise us with a holy sense of humor.
