“So I commend the enjoyment of life, because there is nothing better for a person under the sun than to eat and drink and be glad. Then joy will accompany them in their toil all the days of the life God has given them under the sun.” Ecclesiastes 8:15
Playing is important for growing kids’ brains big and strong, but did you know God wants all of us to play? Life is full of hard work and all that work can wear us out! God knew we would get tired and need lots of rest to recover from our hard work, but he also wanted us to have fun.
God made big green fields for us to turn into ball fields. He crafted stones and sticks to turn into game pieces that were formed into the first boards games ages ago. He gave us stories to tell and act out. He created music to sing and dance to! God loves it when we embrace His creation, and having fun is such a great way to bring him pleasure. So have a fun time today!
How can you see God in the fun that you have with your friends and family?
