Watching a movie, playing a board game, reading a novel — is God disappointed if we use free time for these instead of reading Scripture and praying?
“Hello, Pastor John! My name is Julio. I’m 17 years old, and I live in Brazil. I look forward to seeing you very soon! I was listening to the episode where you addressed the question of when Bible neglect becomes sinful, and a question appeared in my mind. My question is this: In the world we live in today, is it a sin to claim time for things other than reading the Bible or praying? Things such as watching a movie or playing a game are very enjoyable to me, but I wonder if God is disappointed in me for using some of my free time to do these things instead of claiming time for him. I read the Bible and pray every day, go to church almost every week, but it sometimes feels wrong to do anything that isn’t directly connected to the Lord. How do you think about this?”
