Scripture at Sunrise 9.3.09

“A glad heart makes a cheerful face, but by sorrow of heart the spirit is crushed.”  -Proverbs 15:13

“Gospel humility frees you from the need to posture and pose and calculate what others think, so that you are free to laugh at what is really funny with the biggest belly laugh. Proud people don’t really let themselves go in laughter. They don’t get red in the face and fall off chairs and twist their faces into the contortions of real free laughter. Proud people need to keep their dignity. The humble are free to howl with laughter.”

Dr. John Piper, quoted by Justin Taylor
