A Serious Look at Fun

In view of the options

Can anyone doubt that entertainment ranks high on the scale of American values? With the explosion of media technology, entertainment choices are practically unlimited.

Would it be safe to say that ours is the most entertained society in history?

Question: Are we a better people for all that?

Certainly there is a place for wholesome entertainment. Amusements of the right kind can provide the diversion we need from daily stress and refresh our weary spirits.

Choosing wisely

If we truly want what’s best, we’ll steer clear of anything that could corrupt our minds and hearts (Titus 1:15; Philippians 4:8).

And we’ll take care not to let amusements pre-empt Bible study, prayer, and serving others (Ephesians 5:15-17).

As with everything else in life, we must be selective—with God in view.
