Plan some play in your diary. Write in some fun every week because all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy! – Yes, and Jill a boring gal! Some people consider play childish. Jesus told us we would never enter the kingdom of heaven unless we became like children. Perhaps play is a part of what he meant. Play however is also a mark of maturity and intelligence. It can prove that you are free from stifling social conventions, that you can think laterally, that you have intelligences operating beyond the merely functional basic operational thinking. So grow up, be like a kid and play more.

Life was given to enjoy so don’t let God down by missing out on all the good stuff God has provided. Don’t just work all the time! Remember that one of the ten commandments is about not working and taking recreational time and worshipping God.

Go. Get involved in it. The Church is referred to as Christ’s Body. What that means is that the Church can act as Jesus hands, his heart and do Jesus work in the world. The church is a group of people who give expression to God’s love in visible and tangible ways through their words and actions. This Sunday, go to church and then be the church, (the body of Christ) throughout the rest of the week.

Jesus said "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will have the light of life and will never walk in darkness."

Tonight, turn off all the lights in your house, or at least the light in your bedroom. Then walk around and try to do some of the things you would normally do when the light is on. Sit down and reflect on the dangers and limitations of walking in the dark, the benefits of having the light on, and the benefits of living with Jesus.
