A Time To Play
"This is what the Lord Almighty says: 'Once again men and women of ripe old age will
sit in the streets of Jerusalem, each with cane in hand because of his age. The city
streets will be filled with boys and girls playing there.'" Zechariah 8:4-
The prophet Zechariah was speaking about the return of the Israelites to their homeland after being scattered among the nations. I can picture the joy and celebration of everyone smiling, laughing, singing, and playing!
God wants me, his child, to be happy and to be at peace just as he wanted the same for the Isaelites. I might sin and become burdened with problems at times, but in the end I want to balance my responsibilities with pleasure. I want to have fun, too. I want to play!
My kids rarely see me being silly or singing songs of joy. What would they think if I actually joined them in their games more often? If I built Legos with them? If I rode bikes with them? I usually sit on the sidelines. Of course there is nothing wrong with relaxing. Yet, how much better to play!
I cannot be stable in my spiritual walk if all I do is work, work, work. Talk about a dull life! Ugh! And not to mention off balance. So, no matter what happens, I am dedicating more time for playing this year and in the years to come.
