(Thomas Watson, "Kiss the Son")
"The Lord laughs at the wicked, for He knows
"Let us break their chains," they say, "and throw
their day is coming." Psalm 37:13
off their fetters." The One enthroned in heaven
laughs; the Lord scoffs at them. Then He rebukes
them in His anger and terrifies them in His wrath!"
God laughs to
see men's folly—to see poor, weak
clay strive with the Almighty Potter. But let the
wicked remember that God is never more angry
with them—than when He laughs! After His
laughing, then He shall speak to them in His wrath.
"I in turn will laugh at your disaster; I will mock
when calamity overtakes you!" Proverbs 1:26
"Kiss the Son, lest He be angry and you be destroyed
in your way, for His wrath can flare up in a moment!
Blessed are all who take refuge in Him." Psalm 2:12
