"Blessed are you who are hungry now, for you will be filled. "Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh." (Luke 6:21 NRSV)
Will Rodgers had a reputation that he could make anyone laugh. President Calvin Coolidge had a reputation that he never laughed at anything. Finally, Will Rodgers was invited to the White House. People wondered what would happen. Both men's reputations were at stake. It is said that Will Rodgers came through the reception line and was introduced to the President. "President Coolidge, this is Will Rodgers. Mr. Rodgers, this is President Calvin Coolidge." Will Rodgers leaned forward and said, "I'm sorry, I didn't catch your name." The President cracked up and started laughing.

We admire people who are quick on their feet, don't we? Quick on the comeback, saying the right thing at the right time.

May we also be quick to share a kind word, quick to help, and quick to share the good news of Jesus Christ. When we do it will be the right thing at the right time.

Loving God, may my willingness to share open up doors of laughter and faithfulness. Amen.
