I explained that it depends on what we call "fun."
Pleasure is associated with many sinful activities. But Scripture says that type of "fun" is fleeting (Hebrews 11:25) and brings with it emotional, spiritual, and sometimes physical consequences.
✤ His creation offers beauty and pleasure in a variety of sights, sounds, tastes, and smells.
✤ He gave us laughter ... creative talents... friendship... intimacy in marriage... giggling toddlers, sunsets... ocean waves, etc.
✤ We can see God's sense of humor in stories like Balaam's donkey (Numbers 22:28) or the idol Dagon (1 Samuel 5:1-5).
✤ But God goes one step further than fun and gives us joy, which isn't dependent on circumstances (Romans 15:13).
I can see many ways God has added "fun" to my life. How about you? Do you think God is fun?
