Do you agree with this statement?
"...all consists in one hearty renunciation of everything which we are sensible does not lead to GOD..."

In the Christian life is there any place for diversion, recreation, etc? Is it part of God's plan for people that they simply enjoy themselves with no other purpose in mind?
A related question: is there any place for the Christian to spend surplus money on themselves when there are people dying from poverty?
