A Daily Devotion for Wednesday, December 28
Blessed are you who hunger now, for you will be satisfied. Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh.
What I especially hear in this passage is laughter is a very good thing, a thing to enjoy and look forward to. It is not frivolous. It is the opposite of weeping, and is promised to us. Although hardship and pain is a part of life, we will be rewarded with laughter.
Holy One, you promise us good along with the difficult, and laughter is a blessing. Certainly there will be much laughter in eternity, and when we experience laughter in this earthly life, we have a taste of eternity. I am thankful. Amen
