Idle Jesting

I am a joker, a very playful person. I see it as enjoyment for me and (I am hoping) for other people as well. I love it when others laugh, so you can just imagine the joy it brings me when I am the one that makes them laugh. I find that I do it quite often. Sometimes I joke about some very serious matters. While I see it as just fun, to my brother it could be something totally different.

‭‭Romans‬ ‭14:13‬ ‭KJV

Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother's way.‬‬

While I enjoy making fun and trying to make people laugh, I have to be careful to not be idle jesting or foolish talking!

‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭5:3-4‬ ‭KJV‬‬

But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.

Foolish Talking - Silly Talk, Inappropriate Speech

Jesting - Course, Obscene or Vulgar Joking

God has given us all personalities and some mate endowed with comedy. However, they should not become vulgar, obscene or inappropriate. Pay attention to what the Holy Ghost is saying to your spirit. If you get a check/nudge to stop talking, follow Him. Let us walk being mindful of all things.
