One Great Characteristic of a Healthy Team

Here’s one characteristic of a healthy team – whether it’s your church staff, your family, your volunteer worship band, your co-workers, or any other team you are part of….

Laughter.

Laughter is a by-product of joy, connection, and friendship.  It’s a result of having time for stories, memories, and personal connections.  Laughter is a result of play, fun, and joy-filled lives. Laughter helps balance the workload, the tough issues, and the disappointments.

Give yourself permission to enjoy life.  Smile.  Laugh.  Have fun with those around you. It’s a decision we make to be happy.

Christians should be leading the way with joy and laughter even in the midst of crazy seasons of life.

Tell a funny story that happened to you.  Think back to something funny that happened in the past week or so.  Find humor and joy in everyday life.  Be a great audience for someone else’s story and laugh.  Decide to smile and/or laugh more than usual today.

A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones. Proverbs 17:22 ESV 

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

“Peace begins with a smile..” ― Mother Teresa

“If we couldn’t laugh we would all go insane.” ― Robert Frost

“I don’t trust anyone who doesn’t laugh.”  ― Maya Angelou

“You have as much laughter as you have faith.” ― Martin Luther
