• God is the friend of each and every individual. Friends do not like to see friends hurting themselves or other friends, therefore God is the ultimate promoter of peace. If there is a conflict, He will let each individual know what is the best right action.

• God is not only a judge. He is also a companion. If you do not recognize Him, look at your human and animal friends. All good-natured compatibility is shared and enjoyed by the creator of relationships.

• We normally take God very seriously. That does not change the fact that He has the best sense of humor in the universe. He knows all the incongruous situations we put ourselves into. His empathy for our difficulties is not diminished. We will be able to best surpass ourselves when we get to the point where we do not take ourselves so seriously.

• The cynic says the universe is just a big joke. But God does not laugh at us; He laughs with us. He is the embodiment of compassion. It is we who make mistakes and treat each other foolishly. Humor is the general anesthesia for being born human. Humor clarifies the facts and purifies the truth.
