A bit from John Piper:
"Jesus Christ is refreshing, but flight from him into Christless leisure
makes the soul parched. At first it may feel like freedom and fun to
skimp on prayer, and neglect the Word. But then we pay: shallowness,
powerlessness, vulnerability to sin, preoccupation with trifles,
superficial relationships, and a frightening loss of interest in worship and the things of the Spirit."
