The average American child laughs 400 times a day. How many times for an average adult? Twelve. Yeah; you could say that once we grow up, we also grow a serious “silly” deficit.
So how do we get out of it?
“We need to not take ourselves so seriously,” Dahl encourages. “We need to be OK with being silly and not care what other people think when we are.”
Yet another reminder of how our faith can anchor our worth. When our worth is secure, we can have fun with who we are—and find freedom from who we’re not. We can delight in how we’re created and know that if we’re in the kingdom, we can afford to play around there… just a little bit more.
