Creation Question

Answer:

The Lord laughs at him, for He sees that his day is coming (Psalm 37:13).

Bible

Genesis 1:27; Isaiah 62:5; Psalm 2:4; Proverbs 1:26; Psalm 16:11

Well, Alec, we were created in God’s image, which means that although we don’t look like God, we are like God in other ways. God created us to be able to do things that animals can’t do. For example, think, write, read, play games, and laugh! I believe that all of the special things we can do as humans reflect a part of who God is. After all, the Bible tells us that God does have emotions. The Bible tells us about times when God was sad (during Noah’s day) and when God is happy (when we obey His Word). So yes, God can laugh with joy.

The Bible also tells us about times when God laughs in a different way at foolish people because they think they can do things against Him. They think they can sin, reject God, and ignore His Word. God laughs at these wicked people, not to be mean, but because He knows that in the end He is the only true and perfect God and He will have the last say—and He judges wickedness.
