Let the faithful exult in glory; let them sing for joy on their couches. (Psalms 149:5 NRSV)
One of America's favorite and most thoughtful humorists is Erma Bombeck. In one of her columns she told about the little boy who was sitting in front of her in church. He was just as quiet as could be and certainly wasn't bothering anyone, but every once in a while he would turn around and smile happily at everyone behind him. He did this several times to the pleasure of everyone who could see him. Suddenly his mother jerked him around and told him in a loud whisper to stop grinning--he was in church. Then when the tears came to the little fellow's eyes, his mother said, "That's better."

Go to church this Sunday with the great joy of celebrating God's awesome love. Don't make worship a funeral. Make it a joy for all!

Dear God, with joy I will worship you and share your joy. In Jesus name, Amen.
