Do you ever feel goofy? I know I do. When it is raining outside and I'm tired of watching TV, I feel goofy. When I haven't had enough sleep and I get together with friends, I feel goofy. When something silly happens and I can't stop laughing, I feel goofy.
I think there are times when we all feel goofy. In the Bible it says that there is a time for everything. Sometimes you are serious and sometimes you are silly. That is okay! What is not okay is being goofy when it is time to be serious. We all have something called, "self control." Self control is a fruit of the Holy Spirit and helps us to control our words and actions so that we don't break rules or hurt other people's feelings.
If you are having free-time and being goofy is allowed then get goofy. Jump in the air and dance a jig and laugh your brains out. But if you are feeling goofy and it is time to be quiet and sit still, ask God to give you more self control. I know that, with God's help, you can act the right way at the right time.
I am feeling goofy right now and nobody is around, so I think I'll sing a song and draw a funny picture. Are you feeling goofy? Is it a good time to act out your feelings? If so, have some fun. I know I am going to do just that.
