Recreation vs. Amusement

“There is a distinction between recreation and amusement. Recreation, when true to its name, re-creation, tends to strengthen and build up. Calling us aside from our ordinary cares and occupations, it affords refreshment for mind and body, and thus enables us to return with new vigor to the earnest work of life. Amusement, on the other hand, is sought for the sake of pleasure and is often carried to excess; it absorbs the energies that are required for useful work and thus proves a hindrance to life’s true success.” – Education pg. 207; E. G. White “Recreation and amusement, why are they not the same? One has a means to an end. What is amusement? Amusement has no limit. Recreation is re-creation because you have all that fresh air in your lungs and brain cells and you feel good. Recreation tends to strengthen and upbuild.”
