Lots of folks get by on sarcasm. Often, they may seem as if they are the quickest wit in the room, using a snappy bit of sarcasm to make everyone chuckle about an obnoxious colleague or a silly policy. Their sharp sense of humor is often used in to lighten the mood and diffuse tense moments. And yet…
Sarcasm does not really serve as a witness to the Master who commanded that we love our neighbor. As evangelists, we should be giving evidence toward the faith-filled joy in our lives.
Sarcasm hints towards anger, aggression, or sadness. It is the weapon of a bully, not the lifestyle of a believer.
Choose your humor wisely.
