Stand Up Spike

Knock, Knock! Who’s there? Spike knows all the good jokes, and the KC gang wants to put him on the stage at the Talent show. But when Spike switches things up, he has to learn a lesson about what really is funny.

Before You Listen

After you listen

Memory Verse

“Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.”

In this episode, Spike explores what makes something funny, but he uses humor to hurt people. Something isn’t funny when it’s used as a weapon. Putdowns are public attacks. Don’t be the one to say, “I was only joking”. Don’t forget that humor is supposed to be a community-building activity. People laugh harder together than when they are alone. Humor brings joy and makes the room that you are in positive and safe.

Paul the Apostle was a letter writer who would end his letters with positive encouragement. Pretend you were receiving these following Bible verses from Paul. Maybe these encouraging words will make you smile. Ephesians 6:21-24, Philippians 4:23, and 2 Corinthians 13:13.


Can you find a joke that will make everyone laugh? Look for a favorite joke to share. Maybe it’s a story, a riddle or a knock-knock joke. Make sure it’s a joke that doesn’t put down other people or other groups. Before you share it with your family, test it out by telling it to a friend or an adult. Share your joke around the table the next time you have a family meal.
