How should Christians have fun?

When God created human beings, He gave them the capacity and desire for pleasure. Human entertainment can glorify the Lord by expressing joy and creativity. But when unrestrained, it often degenerates into self-gratification.

Living in a society that pursues and worships pleasure, believers today often struggle with a right view of entertainment. How much time should entertainment consume? What types of entertainment may a Christian enjoy? Some in the world simply withdraw from all forms of entertainment, while others refuse to admit any need for moral restraint. Ecclesiastes shows that both philosophies have existed at least since Solomon's day. How should a believer react to these extremes?

Throughout Scripture, God provides principles by which we can weigh the value of entertainment in every form. Upright Downtime distills these truths for practical understanding and application, offering a biblical, balanced response to the pleasure-loving world we live in.
