There’s nothing more infectious than a 2-year-old laughing so hard they can hardly contain themselves. You’ve seen the videos on YouTube, right? I was speaking in a church recently, and outside the sanctuary was this little boy laughing hysterically. You couldn’t help but look over at him and laugh along with him. It went on for some time. But then somebody said, “It’s getting a little out of hand.” To which I said, “Well, would you rather have him laughing or crying?” We both agreed—laughing. How about our homes? Do our kids laugh or cry more? Unfortunately, many Christian homes are more concerned with obeying the “rules” than making their home happy. That’s not to say you should ignore Biblical morality, but, as in anything else, it’s all in how you enforce those rules or lovingly guide.
