We are on to talking about Recreational Intimacy. We've covered emotional, spiritual, non-sexual and sexual intimacy. It's time to focus on fun.
Solomon says over and over that even in the midst of toil and meaninglessness of life that ‘there’s nothing better to do than go ahead and have a good time in whatever we do.’ So you’re busy…go ahead and have a good time. So you’re broke…go ahead and have a good time. (2:24-26, 3:12-13, 3:22, 5:18-20, 8:15)
“Whatever turns up, grab it and do it. And heartily!” Ecc 9:10
In chapter 5:18-20, he says “The best way to live: take care of yourself, have a good time…make the most of what God gives, both the bounty and the capacity to enjoy it…God deals out joy in the present, the NOW.”
So don’t wait for life to be perfect to try to have fun with one another…do it NOW.
