Let’s all be honest here. If being a Christian meant having a boring life, I would say no thank you. I like being silly and having fun. God would be great and all, but I wouldn’t see him as someone worth having a relationship with.
I would just like to make it very clear there is nothing wrong with having a good life. There is so much beauty in the world, why wouldn’t God want us to enjoy it?
I like going to the gym, shopping, and having girl time. You’re here – so we both like to read. As long as we are respecting ourselves and others, enjoying life is not a bad thing.
Here are a few tips.
- Treat yourself to being pampered. I enjoy keeping up with my beauty and appearance. It’s ok to be a beautiful work of art. There is a way to do it without being vulgar.
- It’s ok to talk to others. If there are healthy boundaries and no one is getting hurt, it’s ok. Being a Christian is more than just throwing Jesus in someone’s face. Every part of your life – including how you treat others, should reflect the blessings God has given you.
- Hobbies and interest are nice to have. Don’t judge me, but I like to watch videos about Disney World. It’s an entire culture of videos dedicated to the parks and movies, it makes me feel like a kid again.
Let go and have fun – just be smart and safe.
15 So I commended enjoyment because there is nothing better for a person under the sun than to eat, drink, and enjoy himself, for this will accompany him in his labor during the days of his life that God gives him under the sun.
