The last laugh
God was not joking. In fact, it would be God who would have the last laugh: Abraham and Sarah would have a baby and God said his name would be Isaac (which means “laughed”).
Many people today laugh at God and his law, both natural law and revealed law.
God, of course, will have the last laugh.
Like Abraham, we may not always understand what God has to say. We may not even understand the full depth of meaning in God’s laws.
May God always give us the gifts of faith and repentance, so that we may find eternal joy in him through the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
