What Do You Do For Fun?

A young man attempted to lure a young lady in the manner that Potiphar’s wife did with Joseph (Genesis 39.7-10), but she wouldn’t hear tell of it. Then he offered her an intoxicating drink which she refused. A little later he wanted to share some marijuana with her, but she turned that down as well.

By this time, he was thoroughly disgusted and sulkily demanded to know what she did for fun. She said, “I never have to worry about being diseased or pregnant. And that’s fun! That means I don’t have to wrestle with a decision to abort an unwanted baby, and that’s fun. And I don’t have to wonder if I’m being pawed over by someone who might not want to know me a couple months from now. And that’s fun. I never have any difficulty remembering what I did the night before and who I did it with, and that’s fun, too. And I’m looking forward to the day when I can give myself totally to my husband rather than give a panicky fraction of myself in the backseat of some car. And that’s fun. I can hardly wait, but I will. I won’t ever have to worry about getting a blood test that tells me I have AIDS or some other venereal disease, and believe me, that’s fun. My parents love me more than I can say and if I were to get into trouble of any kind, they’d be right there with me. But I never have to worry about seeing them crushed and shamed by some disgraceful behavior of mine, and believe me, as much as I love them, that’s really. fun.”
