The Problem of Boredom

By   •   October 11   •   Topics:


Do you know what nearly all the sociologists say today in their study of young people? The greatest problem facing young people today is not sex—it is boredom, boredom. Did you know that when they had the riot at Hampton Beach in New Hampshire they asked the young people what was wrong, why did they do it? Many of them said, “Just for the hell of it.” Bored—life has no purpose, life has no meaning. Give your life to Christ and you will never spend another bored minute.

Prayer for the day

Lord Jesus, when I gave my life to You, my days were flooded with the splendor of Your love.

    I remember one day my kids when they were little saying we are bored with nothing to do. I said lets take a trip to the senior down the street to see if her yard needs raking, After they did rake her yard they felt good about doing a good deed. As parents we sometimes need to plant something in our children so when they grow up they remember something good to do when they are bored.

    Thank you, yes the only way is to give our life to Jesus, then we only get a touch of boredomfeeling, not for long because the Holy Spirit dominate our life. Praise the Lord!

    I am astonished that anyone would be so bored that they would commit mayhem. The lost tend to act out their nature.

    Once the Holy Spirit fills your heart boredom will be a thing of the past.
