The Playful Life

One of the books I'm reading talks about the playful personality of Jesus. I'm really liking it, and I've been thinking about it a lot the last couple of weeks. I like to play. I have some favorite games, like twister, musical chairs, and apples to apples. I think it's fun to be playful, to tease, to laugh, and to be silly....and these last couple weeks I've been thinking about some of the ways that Jesus is playful, silly, full of laughter, and does He tease? If He came to one of my parties, would He join right in with the teasing? Would He try to get to my chair before me, laughing  and teasing? Would He burst out laughing along with everyone else when I drop an armful of dishes? Would he tease relentlessly, play endlessly, laugh loudly?  I hope so. When it's picture time would he make a face, or do silly peace signs?
As I have talked to Jesus and asked Him to reveal to me who He is, I have asked to know more of His personality. I want to know Him, all of Him. I want to see the playfulness of Jesus and be able to interact with Him on this level. I really enjoy playing with my friends. I love to laugh with them, tease them, be silly. And, I think Jesus, enjoyed that kind of relationship with His friends when He walked this earth, I want to enjoy that with Him now. I want to see Him fully.
Say That Again, Jesus, You are playful. You have given me a playful nature, and I desire to see yours!


  1. This post makes my imagination run wild we are created in his image so where else would we get our sense of humor... oh and I would love to see Jesus steal the pink chair from you :-)

    1. Ha! I guess He'd have to out run me first!! :-)
