-Sarah said, – “God has brought me laughter, and everyone who hears about this will be laughing with me.”–
- Astonishing to think that The Old Testament God of Soap Opera and killing, of Jealousness and Violence, should have a sense of laughter.
And what a way to express it!
Too often Leviticus is quoted to injure homosexuals – unfocused on the injury to women, ALL women – whilst here, in this single verse, God laughs;
And Sarah laughs, and everyone laughs, and the dignity of the wife is restored and the dignity of the husband is restored, and the dignity of his host is restored – truly, hilarious.
-“So when Jacob came in from the fields that evening, Leah went in to meet him.
“You must sleep with me,” she said. “I have hired you with my son’s mandrakes.”
So he slept with her that night.”-
The scandal! The treachery! The salaciousness!
I am reminded to laugh and to laugh WITH people and not AT them.
I am reminded too of The BHAGAVAD GITA, and of Hindu Mythology, and Hindu God’s, and of the Mahabharata, and of Draupadi
