Let me take a moment to make this clear though: God is not being a jerkface by scoffing at those who oppose Him Psalm All glory is due to Him, and those who oppose Him are trying to 'take away' from God. God takes no joy in the disobedience of His opposition, even if He may mock them.

He has every right to, but He always wants to see them turn to Him instead Matthew Turn back, turn back from your evil ways! Why then will you die, O house of Israel? And this brings us to the difference between man's and God's sense of humor. When God uses mockery, He can because all glory is due to Him. When we use mockery, it is not appropriate because we have no right.
Human beings are not on the same level as God. Also, any humor that is done at the expense of someone else's feelings, that only tears them down instead of building them up, is also something that God says we should not do Colossians ; Ephesians ? If your humor is lighthearted, doesn't hurt you self-depreciating or anyone else slams or disrespects; even someone who isn't there , and does not go against God's commands for our lives in any serious manner , then it is perfectly fine.
Lighthearted sarcasm and a sharp wit can be fun ways to use the intelligence God gave us.
Humor can be a wonderful way to cheer up a friend or bring levity to a too-serious situation when appropriate of course. God can use you to encourage and bring joy to others with the heart and humor that He has given you. But cutting remarks at the expense of someone else is not using that gift of humor how God intended. Proverbs Be discerning about different situations and whether or not humor is appropriate at that time.
Colossians says, "Let your speech always be with grace, as though seasoned with salt, so that you will know how you should respond to each person. Always have control over yourself and your words because the tongue is the quickest weapon and sometimes strikes before we even realize what has happened.
James says that the tongue is "a restless evil, full of deadly poison," so we must keep it tamed! When in doubt, ask the Holy Spirit for wisdom before entering a situation where it might not be a good idea to exercise your wit. Yes, God has given us the ability to appreciate humor and share jokes with our friends.

At the same time, humor can be a great way to cheer up or encourage a friend. Yes, God gave us the ability to laugh, and it's not a sin! Or consider what we find in Scripture itself keeping in mind that Scripture was inspired by God. Job a very serious book describes the life of a stork in pretty funny terms. Verse 17 says, "For God did not endow her with wisdom or give her a share of good sense. The prophet Jonah found in the book of the same name was a "drama queen" who makes us laugh in retrospect. After running from God, being rescued from drowning by spending three days in a fish's belly, and then complaining that God rescued Nineveh from destruction, Jonah throws a tantrum about a vine dying because it made him so hot and uncomfortable to lose its shade.
In Jonah he complains about the vine saying, "I am angry enough to die. Lighten up!
Does God Have a Sense of Humour? ~ The Imaginative Conservative
Proverbs is a funny book at times. If you read it aloud to a group, it's difficult not to laugh. Proverbs says, "Like a gold ring in a pig's snout is a beautiful woman who shows no discretion. You wonder if Solomon had just fought with one of his many wives when he said, "Better to live on a corner of the roof than share a house with a quarrelsome wife" However, my favorite proverb is , "The sluggard says, 'There is a lion outside!
I don't recommend trying it with your boss next Monday though. And there's the night person's favorite verse, "If a man loudly blesses his neighbor early in the morning, it will be taken as a curse" I had a roommate in college who quoted this to me, reminding me that not everyone wakes up cheery.
But I think Hebrews is the funniest verse in the Bible: "Therefore there was born even of [Abraham], and him as good as dead at that , as many descendants as the stars in heaven …" emphasis mine, NASB. Of course God's humor is never cruel the way humans twist it to be at times. In fact, God is entirely pure and untainted, thus so is his humor.
Such a God inspired the author of Proverbs to write, "A happy heart makes the face cheerful" , or seen from the opposite point of view in verse 30, "A cheerful look brings joy to the heart.
