Breaking The Mold
A lot of people think that Christians are stiff and pushy. The fact is, a lot of us may be pushy or even direct, but I think we still know how to have fun. As Christians, we are taught that we must share the good news with the masses. There are a lot of untapped souls in the world that have not heard about Christ. This is why we send missionaries out into the world and why we witness to others. The word of God must reach everyone.
On the other hand, we still have to find outlets and ways to cope with the weight of our day-to-day responsibilities. This doesn’t mean that we have to go out and do something we might regret in the morning. I simply mean have fun. How we do it will be a witness to those around us.
There are many ways to enjoy yourself without “losing your religion.” It might be cracking open that book you’ve been dying to read. Nature is a beautiful amenity to behold–plus it’s free. Go skiing, hiking, swimming or just take a long walk. I personally love the outdoors and playing sports. I try to find time in between studying to go for a run or throw some chicken breasts on the grill. Fellowshipping with others is also a way to have a good time.
As we prepare to go on Spring Break, I hope you’ll remember to relax and have fun. I certainly intend to!
