If a person is not joyful in his religion, then his religion has allowed him to be proud. A religion of humility is a religion of joy as we learn to laugh at what we cannot understand. We see this often in children who, in response to what seems impossible or extraordinary (like a man pulling off his own thumb)–laugh. Maybe that is why in order for us to embrace Christianity in humility and joy, we must become as little children.
