What we do when we’re bored

The worst tragedy in life is to live in continual boredom without interacting with the divine. Bored people are compelled to search for different pleasures to fill their spiritual emptiness and loneliness. If we are not growing in our understanding of the beauty of Jesus and his purpose, then we will inevitably spend our free time and resources seeking fame, fortune, pleasure, entertainment, and recognition from others, which do not satisfy. They may temporarily deaden the pain of emptiness and loneliness, which stems from not having a growing relationship with God, but encountering beauty is the only real and lasting solution to overcoming boredom. 1
