If you had an extra half hour to do whatever, what would you do with your time? That was the question I faced throughout my day Tuesday; yet as you can see if the picture, I didn’t waste it! I’ve often thought, meditated, prayed, etc. what would life be like if we didn’t have any simple fun. What would the world look like? What would you BE like?
I’m sure upon reading this many of you might reflect on what areas in your life you would define as FUN. Yet I really wonder if your type of fun is the type of fun that God would approve of and enjoy seeing you do? But before any of you begin to break down the sins of others actions before your own; let’s look at the simplicity of fun…..
I like to dance.
Many of the conservative types would think their grandmother would have only danced as she turned in her grave if you did! Moving your body in a rhythmic motion to a stimuli of happiness! Music not needed; just happy thoughts! Yet, the sensuality that we’ve made it to be, makes dancing have a negative perception, especially to “Christians“!
Praise his name with dancing, accompanied by tambourine and harp. (Psalms 149:3 NLT)
Wearing a linen ephod, David was dancing before the Lord with all his might, while he and all Israel were bringing up the ark of the Lord with shouts and the sound of trumpets. (2 Samuel 6:14, 15 NIV)
Too much emphasis is put on the properness of how Christians are to behave; yet we forget we serve a God who is worthy of our BEST praise! The raising of hands, the shouts of praise & proclamation, and the celebration of LIFE that He gave us is the fun we should express openly!
If your missing out on having the fun a FREE life is suppose to have in Jesus Christ, then maybe instead of reading a silly comment of fun and criticize the sanity of that person; maybe you should ask that person how to get some of that fun in your life??
May those who make fun of me be too embarrassed to speak. (Psalms 70:3 ERV)
“Let EVERYTHING that has BREATH praise The Lord!!!”
