A clown is like aspirin, only he works twice as fast. (Groucho Marx, late comedian and TV host)

When you’re in pain, does “Take 2 aspirin and call me in the morning” really help? Do you find relief in changing your focus by watching a situation comedy on TV, finding something funny to be helpful? It’s normal to look for ways to avoid pain. Prevention is a good start, of course. Another is to seek counsel and help from the only one who can give lasting relief from what is more than mere temporal pain.

[God] will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.” (Revelation 21:15)
