A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; Ecclesiastes 3:4
The emotives to grin, laugh, and cry is a normal part of life. A child doesn’t need to be taught as we are wired so as humans. If we simply know when to laugh or cry, both emotions are acceptable. Therefore, We may learn a lot about life by observing when to laugh and when to cry. There are many difficulties in life, and no one can live without encountering both happy and sad moments that make them grin and laugh. We must acknowledge that God endowed us with the capacity for both laughter and tears. It should therefore default traits we were all born with. But be careful how we utilise laughter and grief. Not as a tool to control others, but most definitely as a way to let go of the hurt and hopelessness that occasionally seem to consume us. Crying when you’re unhappy or hurt is healthy. However, keep in mind that a grin or a good chuckle can be therapeutic for both the giver and the receiver. Although, it is not natural to use either inappropriately, it can be a negative learned behaviour that can be changed. There is a season for both crying and laughing. God grant us wisdom to recognise when each is appropriate!
O Lord, guide me at every due season, lessen my grief/unhappiness, let me have reasons to be joyful at all times.
