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. 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.

    Preserve yourself in a simple, pure, devotion to Christ and you’ll never be bored.

  2. Max says:

    I find that audibly talking to God (no need to close my eyes) during my day when I am driving, working around home or other activities when I am alone draws my Soul ever closer to the Holy Spirit and he fills my mind with things to do that leaves no room for boredom.

    Lord Jesus I give YOU my empty body& soul and spirit, transform and fill it up oh LORD.

  4. Gerry says:

    Every day is a new adventure in life. I have absolutely no idea what today holds however my Holy Heavenly Father knows exactly what will occur. ….it’s always in my best interest and its never boring.

  5. Rick Wilson says:

    When one constantly preaches false doctrine, then it is no wonder when boredom is the life for anyone. Seek YHWH God’s Truth, discover the true Yeshua, the Son of the only YHWH God, and follow the Decalogue, the ten commandments handed down from YHWH God to Mosche (Moses) to be followed for all eternity – not to be made excuses for. Come out of spiritual Babylon (confusion) before it is too late!

  8. Adepeju Robert James says:

    For in Christ Jesus there is no boredom. Lord Jesus Christ let my life be flooded with your love

  9. Peggy Coleman says:

    No if people were doing what they should be doing including being a Christian they wouldn’t be bored. There is always something to do at home or volunteer at a nursing home or hospital. A lot of the patients don’t have family and love just a minute of somebody’s time.
